During the Monday night Central Community High School board meeting, a budget hearing was presented and approved by the board.
According to Superintendent Dr. Dustin Foutch, the preliminary fiscal year 2023 budget was presented last month and has been on public display for the past 30 days.
"For the fiscal year (FY) 2023 budget, we estimated projected revenues conservatively," he said. "With that, estimated expenditures were budgeted for FY23 and we also included the potential for unexpected circumstances/contingencies."
Foutch added that they are "making increased efforts to limit expenses in every line item of the budget."
Once approved, they will post the FY23 budget to the school's website (www.centralcougars.org/) and file it with the Regional Office of Education, as required by law.
In other news, Foutch reported that the main power panel at Central was installed approximately 50 years ago. "Since that time, we have added a considerable amount of buildings to our campus, and it is our plan to continue this expansion with the addition of our new field house," he said.
