City approves Valdez City School District budget

by Tony Gorman

The Valdez City School District's budget for next year was finally approved by the city.  The City Council passed the $9.4 million budget on a 5-1 vote during Monday night's meeting.  Councilman Joe Prax was the only member to vote no.  Councilman Mike Wells was absent from meeting.  The District spent the last several months covering a budget shortfall.  The deficit increased with a 21 percent hike in staff health insurance.  The District received $250,000 from the city earlier this month to cover the costs.
