Milford Board of Education budget workshop tonight

The Milford Board of Education budget process is under way, and a budget workshop is planned Jan. 16 at 7 p.m., with additional workshops scheduled as needed. Meetings take place in the school board conference room at the Parsons Government Center.

The Board of Education is scheduled to approve its 2014-15 budget at its Jan. 22 meeting, which starts at 7 p.m.

This marks the beginning of the budget process, which wraps up in May. In the next few months, the Board of Finance will hold a public hearing on the proposed city and school budgets and then vote on a budget that it sees as appropriate.

Next, the Board of Aldermen will take a look at the finance board- approved plan, hold another public hearing, and then review and debate until the board adopts its version, the final version, of the city spending plan for 2014-15.
