Considering the waste the FCPS board has overseen in the past 5 years..it’s time to tell the money addict no. Since the county is already struggling to pay it’s current bills is adding 33 million to a deficit of 11.8 million a good idea? Mr. Young please?
Frederick County Public Schools officials are calling for a $33 million increase in fiscal 2012 over this year’s budget of $507 million.
It is a figure some school board members said they weren’t comfortable taking to the Board of County Commissioners.
The bulk of the increase is from a $10.7 million salary increase for system employees and a $15.5 million annual contribution to the retiree benefits trust fund.
