Another budget proposal planned

  // Thursday, 14 August 2014 00:24 //

LAFAYETTE — Superintendent Pat Cooper is putting another balanced budget proposal on the table for the Lafayette Parish School Board to consider at its meeting Thursday in lieu of the board’s previously approved cuts.

The board has rejected previous balanced budget proposals from Cooper, though his latest proposal does not include any further reduction of the general fund’s rainy day account.

The board recommended and approved using about $1.3 million from the rainy day account to bridge a shortfall in its general fund at its last budget meeting on July 31.

Since mid-May, the board has held meetings — some stretching more than six hours — to identify general fund cuts rather than accept budgets proposed by Cooper and his staff.
