School officials appeared before the Roane County Commission on Feb. 11 requesting approval of a $99,012 budget amendment that was passed by the school board in December.
“It’s a routine budget amendment that just reflects new revenues and new expenditures since the original budget,” Director of Schools Gary Aytes said.
The vote, however, was anything but routine.
Six commissioners voted in favor of the amendment.
Four voted no, and five others passed.
