HILLSVILLE — Citing a need for efficiency and economy, Carroll County supervisors decided to categorically change how they fund the school system at their November meeting last Thursday.
Supervisor David Hutchins initiated the discussion about what process to use to fund the school system, and the other four board members present agreed to his motion. (Supervisors' Chairman Wes Hurst was away on business.)
Fresh off a Virginia Association of Counties gathering, Hutchins recalled that the attendees had heard about the tough financial year ahead.
