MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)- A $3,000 increase for certified employees in Bibb County and a 2% increase for classified employees was proposed at the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Superintendents Recommended Budget.

The Bibb County Board of Education held a Called Board Meeting to discuss tentative approval for the FY 2020 budget.

The mission of the budget is to develop a highly trained staff and engage a community dedicated to education.

The total budget for FY 2020 is approximately $336 million which is an almost 4% increase from the 2019 budget.

This is due to increases in school nutrition, capital projects and special revenue.
