Bay City School Board Focusing On Budget Issues

Supt. Stephen Bigelow

Bay City school district Superintendent Stephen Bigelow says progress is being made to strengthen the budget. Bigelow explained a second budget amendment adopted by school board trustees Monday left a fund balance of just over 6.1 %, or the highest budgeted reserves in a number of years. He called it a move in the right direction.

Bigelow said the board and administrators are moving ahead with a “Zero Based Budgeting” concept, which requires justification of every item going into the document that will guide the district through the 2018-19 school year.
