EISD to present balanced budget

Lisa Fincher, Ennis ISD Superintendent of Finance, said Tuesday night the district will present a balanced budget on Aug. 26, averting a million-dollar budget deficit first feared back in June.
Fincher told the Ennis ISD Board of Trustees on June 10 the costs of HVAC and roofing projects in the district, along with increases to costs related to health insurance and the Teacher Retirement System could have pushed the district into the red. However, she said Tuesday that won’t come to pass.
“That was a worst case scenario,” Fincher said. “We were never, ever going to end up a million dollars behind. We will present a balanced budget.”
