CLARKSVILLE, TN (CLARKSVILLE NOW) – County commissioners voted Monday on two budget amendments from Clarksville-Montgomery County School System, one of which contained a hotly debated pay raise for CMCSS Director of Schools Millard House.
The original budget proposal came before the County Commission last month, when commissioners passed an amendment to send the proposal back the School Board. School Board members voted to split the original proposal into two parts, sections A and B.
Section A (Res. 21-5-6) contained various budget increases, including a pay increase for teachers and maintenance staff, while Section B (Res. 21-5-7) focused solely on budget increases for the director’s office and salary.
Section A passed unanimously, while Section B failed 9-10. District 17 Commissioner Chris Rasnic was absent.
