At its Thursday night meeting, members of the Trigg County Board of Education unanimously approved a “tentative” budget of $23,024,015.24 for the 2013/2014 fiscal year.

The budget includes $18,005,395 in the General Fund, $2,079,614 in the Special Revenue Fund, $434,688.81 in the Capital Outlay Fund, $798,483.96 in the Building Fund, $ 797,387.52 in the Debt Service Fund, $1,564,132.47 in the Food Service Fund and $141,701 in the Trigg Tots Fund.

The working budget won’t be approved until September. They already acknowledged a review of the draft budget earlier this year. Trigg County School Superintendent Travis Hamby said the tentative budget gives the board something to start from on July 1 – the beginning of the fiscal year.

“When it comes to the draft budget, we know almost nothing,” said Hamby. “When it comes to the tentative budget, the picture’s becoming a little more clear, it’s not as cloudy, and then by the time of the working budget gets here, we have all the data to finalize our budget for that particular school year.”

The tentative budget includes a carry forward balance of $5,852,000, an increase from $5,369,886.39 from the draft budget, because of additional revenue, including additional impact aid money, said Hamby.
