The county’s budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year could wind up in some peril if the Roane County Board of Education decides to cut out funding for school resource officers.
The cost for the six SROs is shared between the school system and the county with the schools budgeted to contribute $210,000.
The school board asked the county commission to increase the property tax rate by 14 cents to make up for a budget shortfall caused by a drop in state funding.
