The Mulberry Grove Unit 1 Board of Education approved its new budget for fiscal year 2022 Monday night.
Superintendent Bobby Koontz talked about the budget before it was unanimously approved. He said all funds should end up in the black except for transportation, which is common. He said most funds should go up some, but not as much as next year. He also noted that the tax computation report just came out so there’s a strong chance the district won’t see a tax payment until December.
