After crunching the numbers for weeks, months even, the Barrow County Board of Education officially passed its fiscal year 2011 budget Tuesday night.
By the time Tuesday night’s meeting arrived, there wasn’t much left to be discussed.
“I think we’ve beat this horse to death,” board member Lynn Stevens said. “Let’s vote.”
The budget passed by a 7-1 vote with Dan Cromer voting in opposition. Member Larry Ballard was not in attendance.
The FY 2011 budget will have expenditures of $90,742,855 with anticipated revenues of $89,184,154.
