BOE OKs $2.45 Billion Budget, Asks for Additional $45.7 Million in Funding from County Council
At its regular meeting last Tuesday, Feb, 9 the Montgomery County Board of Education approved the FY2017 Operating Budget and voted to ask the County Council for an additional $45.7 million over and above the $2.45 billion included in the approved budget.
The Board of Education is asking for a total of $2.50 billion in the FY2017 operating budget, which is $45.7 million more than what interim Superintende
nt Larry Bowers recommended to the Board in early December. The additional funds are to be considered in three tiers of roughly $15 million each, after the County Council fully funds the approved $2.45 billion budget.
