MADISON — The local school board will consider a $10.2 million budget Monday, a figure that represents an increase over the current budget but does not include a tax increase, according to the superintendent.

The current School Administrative District 59 proposed budget of $10,212,036 is an increase from the $10.1 million budget approved by residents last year.

The school board is scheduled to consider approving the budget at its next regular meeting, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday in Room 111 of Madison Junior High School.

Superintendent Bonnie Levesque said there will not be an increase in cost to taxpayers. because of an increase in state funding.

Levesque would not release details of what is proposed in the budget and said she did not want details of the proposal published in the newspaper before the board votes on it.

School board Chairman Bruce Thebarge did not respond to a phone call seeking comment Thursday.

The Morning Sentinel has filed a Freedom of Access Act request for the proposed 2019-2020 budget.

A budget information meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. April 29 in the Madison Junior High School cafeteria, followed by the district budget meeting at 7 p.m. May 6 at the same location.

The budget validation referendum is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. May 14 at the Madison Town Office.
