New Budget Being Set In Tullahoma

The first reading of Tullahoma’s budget for the coming year was approved this week by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen, but it does not include additional funding the school system has requested for a $1 million-plus high school roof and system-wide pay raises totaling about $575,000. School board officials say that the high school roof has been leaking, and it’s questionable how long it will last. They say that they hope the city can refinance some of its debt and find additional bond money that might be able to go toward fixing Tullahoma High School’s roof. The city’s budget must be fully approved on three ordinance readings by the Board of Aldermen.
