The Avonworth School Board has approved a proposed 2016-17 budget with no increase in the property tax millage rate.
At their May 9 meeting, board members approved the proposed budget showing revenue of $28,745,949 and expenditures of $28,895,949.
The millage rate will remain at its current 18.67 mills.
According to fiscal manager Brad Waters, the $150,000 difference between revenues and expenses in the proposed budget, will be met in one of three possible ways: expenses could decrease, revenues could increase, or through the use of unassigned reserve funds.
