The state of Illinois isn’t the only operating government with a problematic budget in place for fiscal year 2012.

At Monday night’s Taylorville School Board of Education monthly meeting, the board voted on a budget that saw slight increases from the proposed budget in August due in part to unforeseen expenses in construction to district facilities.

Taylorville School District Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau told board of education members Monday night that supplies and technology increases also contributed to an increased budget for the 2012 fiscal year.

Fuerstenau adds that reductions in certain revenues are also going to affect the district on the new budget.
