PORTAGE (WKZO) -- The Portage School Board has unanimously approved their 78.6-million dollar Budget for the coming school year. It calls for a slight decrease in spending and a dip into their reserve fund to balance their books.

Board Chair Bo Snyder thanked staff for the hard work they put into it.

While there are adjustments on both the revenue and expenditure sides, it’s very close to the same spending plan they had last year.

The budget is due July 1st, when the new fiscal year begins.
