Parents speak in favor of GES expansion

Much of the discussion of the city’s recently approved budget for fiscal year 2018 involved a tax increase to pay for an expansion of Galax Elementary School.

At a recent public hearing, parents of Galax students let city council know they support the proposed $17 million expansion, which is in the early planning stages.

The city approved a budget on June 12, after holding a hearing at its May 22 meeting. The new fiscal year begins July 1.

The general fund is $17.8 million, the utility fund is $5.5 million and the stormwater fund is $129,500.
