AISD holds public hearing on budget

Austin ISD's board of trustees will get an opportunity to hear the public's comments on the district's $724.2 million budget Monday night.

The school board is expected to vote tonight on the district's spending, though it will not approve the final budget, which includes district revenue, until August. Board members are still considering whether to ask voters for a tax increase in November.

The spending plan includes using $14.2 million from the district's reserves to give employees a one-time payment equivalent to a 3 percent raise. That bump in pay could become permanent if the board moves forward with and voters approve the tax rate increase.

School trustees have said they want to wait on the tax decision until they know what other jurisdictions are doing.
