Woodbury City Council Approves Budget Reduction Resolution

The Woodbury City Council approved a resolution to recommend a reduction to the proposed 2010-11 school budget.

The city, by this resolution, recommended a reduction of $56,571. This will bring the total school tax levy for the general fund budget to 10,944,106 for the 2010-11 school year. This makes the total General Fund budget approximately $1 million dollars ($932,985) LESS THAN the current 2009-10 school year amount.

We were pleased that the City Council's Finance Committee and the City Council as a whole recognized the many difficult decisions that already went into crafting the current budget proposal. The Board of Education now needs to adopt this reduction and then the budget will be set for the new school year.
