Mesa County School District Approves $118 Million Budget

Monday night Mesa County School District 51 re–approved the budget for the current school year. In a special meeting at the Emerson School the district 51 board unanimously approved the $118 million budget.

In June the budget was approved for $116 million, but now that the official enrollment numbers are in for the school year an increase to the budget was necessary.

Under a state statute the board has until October 15h to make necessary changes to the budget.

Also at that meeting the board unanimously approved architect contracts for Broadway Elementary and Mt. Garfield Middle School improvements.
