The Dougherty County Board of Education has adopted a spending plan for Fiscal year 2013, which starts Sunday.
The board OK'd the $116 million spending plan in a 6-1 vote. District 1 School Board representative David Maschke was the only opposing vote.
The plan does not include a tax increase.
In a preliminary vote on June 11, Maschke said he opposed the spending blueprint because it did not include information on spending controls and consultant fees.
The budget also reduces the number of employee furlough days to six from the 10 that employees had in the FY 2012 the ends Saturday.
