Deliberative Session Feb. 2 at 7:00 p.m. BHS Theater

All voters in Bedford are urged to come to the Bedford School District Deliberative Session on Tuesday, February 2 at 7:00 p.m. at the Bedford High School Theater.  This is when the community either affirms or revises the School Board's proposed budget for 2016-17 (The budget is presented in the School District Warrant.) The proposed budget is $68.3M, a 3.9% increase over this year.  The increase is primarily because of personnel, health insurance benefits, and significant building maintenance.  Voting on the warrant is on Tuesday, March 8 from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Bedford High School gymnasium.  If the proposed budget is voted down, the default budget would be $2.3M lower.  Additional information can be found here.
