Sequim: $18 million school budget approved

SEQUIM — School directors Monday night approved the 2002-03 budget with expenditures of more than $18 million.

The approval followed the second of two hearings designed to give the public a chance to comment on the budget.

Only Sequim resident Joan Ritchie, a regular attendee of board meetings, asked for information during the two hearings.

Monday night, she wanted to know if there was money budgeted to cover replacement of noisy heaters in the Sequim Community School.

Superintendent Mike Joyner said the budget includes $160,000 for capital projects, but added that there is about $3 million in small projects, many of them at the community school in the district’s oldest building.
