Budgeting for next school year

Continue reading below

School Committee members will be presented with the proposed budget for fiscal 2014 at their meeting on Monday. If they don’t get through the budget presentation that night, the meeting will be continued the next two nights, if necessary. “We usually don’t need three days,” said School Committee Chairman Dennis Begley. As in many other school districts, Plymouth school officials expect a tight budget next fiscal year, which begins July 1. Begley said that through efforts like the schools’ solar-electricity initiative, “we’re able to reduce our costs. We may not be in as bad as situation as other places.” Superintendent Gary E. Maestas noted that the schools were previously spending $600,000 on oil to heat school buildings, and by converting to natural gas and energy-efficient systems, that item has been brought down to $64,000. The budget meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the Little Theatre at Plymouth Community Intermediate School at 117 Long Pond Road.
