  • Shelby County School Board: ‘Tighter’ budget could get worse

    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.

    “And the next two years could be even more difficult. The second year of the biennium has the potential to be very, very difficult.”
