Madison School District holds final public hearing on budget

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Sunday was the final chance for the public to sound off on the Madison School District's budget proposal.

The school board listened to concerns at Warner Park on the city's north side.

Around 100 people showed up.

Right now, the board is picking and choosing items to make up for a $30 million budget gap.

"I felt this testimony should have been received before budget problems were even made," said Rebecca Kemble, a concerned parent. "So, we wouldn't be here begging for these programs to be restored."

The board has a budget workshop Monday night, and additional action is expected.

The final budget plan for the next school year will be approved May 4.
