Phoenixville School District considers cutting public library funding

    With tough decisions to make, the Phoenixville Area School Board is talking about cutting some of its funding to the public library for the coming school year.

    Board Vice President Debbie Dawson talked about a $21,000 cut to Phoenixville Public Library.

    The Pottstown Mercury reports board members were split over whether to cut funding, disagreeing over how many services the public library provides to its students.

    Other possible cuts include $20,700 in athletics, $702,412 in personnel costs and about $200,000 for technology expenditures.

    The board will have a budget meeting tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. in the middle school library.
