833 budget for 2010-11 lower than projected
The District 833 School Board shaved about $1.7 million from the district's 2010-2011 budget at its March 4 workshop.
The budget will still run a $4.5 million deficit, which will come out of the district's $23 million fund balance.
The major cut is a $2.5 million annual payment to the fund that covers retiree expenses. A district consultant told the board last summer that the fund had more money than necessary.
