Finance meeting reschedule­d

- — JON O’CONNELL

The Scranton School Board has postponed a public work session and finance meeting that had been scheduled for tonight.

The work session and budget and finance committee meeting are to be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Administra­tion Building, 425 N. Washington Ave.

School directors are considerin­g borrowing $10 million and a 3.8 percent tax hike in 2017. The decisions come as the district faces a $17 million budget gap. The measures would still leave the budget unbalanced.

The district must meet a Dec. 31 budget deadline. Directors are expected to vote after Christmas.
