ST. MARYS - A new program is in the works to offer low income students in the St. Marys Area School District access to pre-Kindergarten instruction, the only of its kind in the county.
The Fox Township Supervisors met in a brief executive session during their recently held regular monthly meeting.
As a result, Supervisor Mike Keller said they discussed negotiations to purchase property from Dinsmore Welding at the Industrial Park. The township has agreed to purchase the land, with Supervisor Randy Gradizzi to present the owner with the price to see if he agrees with the amount.
Supervisor Dave Mattiuz said a resident requested open gym hours at the Community Building. He said he believed this to be a good idea. The supervisors approved looking into the request.
With enrollment and revenue both in decline, expenditures on the rise and uncertainty surrounding the future of state funding all shaping discussions surrounding the district's budget, St. Marys Area School District Superintendent Ann Kearney presented the proposed budget for 2013-2014 to the board Thursday night.
