The Shelby County school board approved a bleak budget on Thursday, although it balances, and according to Greg Murphy, the district director of finance, it could get worse.
“I think last year I used the term razor thin, and this year it’s even tighter,” Murphy told the board in his report. “The budget balances, and our revenue exceeds our expenses, barely.
“And the next two years could be even more difficult. The second year of the biennium has the potential to be very, very difficult.”
