School board votes for plan that raises spending 2.29%

The Milford Board of Education voted Tuesday night to approve the school superintendent’s budget request, with a slight reduction.

School Supt. Dr. Elizabeth Feser had requested an $88.87 million spending plan for 2013-14. The board approved that, minus $27,000, taken from several areas.

The superintendent’s request had represented a 2.29% increase over the current year’s spending plan.

With the board’s reduction, the request is still a 2.29% increase.

Next, the proposal will go to the Board of Finance and then the Board of Aldermen for approval.
