Now that the Stewart administration has put a $216 million budget on the table officials have set a public hearing for Thursday May 12th at 6 p.m.   The hearing will be held at Slade Middle School, not the high school as originally announced.

With federal recovery act funds gone and a best-case scenario of level funding for state education aid, the operative word is “layoff”from the brass at the Board of Education and the Mayor’s Office.

At City Hall, Mayor Stewart says $11 million must be saved via layoffs or related reductions in or to the work force.
