There could be a cash crunch again at the Vernon School District.

Trustees were told Wednesday that the proposed  2014/15 budget includes $1.2 million in cost pressures. However, it’s premature to say whether cuts will be needed.

“We’ll have to address them (costs) and find a way to fund them,” said Bill Turanski, chairperson.

A public information meeting on the budget will be held Jan. 27 at 6:30 p.m. at Vernon Secondary School’s library.
