The Greater Johnstown Board of Education met Thursday night to work on a revised budget. It comes a week after a budget with a 35 percent tax levy increase was defeated.
With the clock ticking toward the revote, the board will move forward with a revised budget of $37.8 million.
It will carry a 14.6 percent tax levy increase, which requires just a simple majority to pass.
“There is not a member of this board of education, administration, or staff who is not devastated with this turn of events,” said Kathy Dougherty, Greater Johnstown Board of Education president.
This proposed budget will provide $200,000 from their savings for sports. An additional $311,000 will need to be fundraised to have all sports next year.
