School board proposes budget, dedicates parking for band use

During a special called meeting of the Mount Vernon ISD Board of Trustees on Thursday, August 1, members proposed a budget and tax rate for the 2019-20 school year and dedicated a parking lot on the east side of the school for use by the marching band.

MVISD’s Director of Business and Finance Pam VanDeaver presented the board with a budget that should add around $200,000 to the district’s fund balance by the end of the cycle. See the August 8 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for a break down of the district’s budget.
