Amid the roar of battles in the Fred Fox fiasco, a budget crisis has crept in like a silent assassin.
Last year, well before the Huron school board started investigating superintendent Fred Fox on allegations of wrongdoing, Fox and district treasurer Mike Weis presented the board with $600,000 in possible budget cuts.
“There was no action taken on that,” Weis said Tuesday at a Huron Rotary meeting where he was the featured speaker. “I assume they got busy with something else.”
The understatement drew chuckles from the crowd, whose members then leveled some poignant questions about the district’s current financial condition.
