Prairie Valley Independent School District Trustees approved the 2017-18 budget and 2017 tax rate during its Aug. 28 meeting.
Superintendent Tim West said the board will retain the present tax rate of $1.04 per $100 in property value.
The 2017-18 budget has set a total of $1,822,005 for expenses, which also balances with the district’s estimated revenues.
This new budget is slightly less than the amended fiscal 2016-17 budget which had expenses totaling $1,889,734. West noted however, when all the final bills and revenues are tallied he anticipates the budget will end the year closer to $1,772,595.
