FORSAN — It's crunch time for trustees with the Forsan Independent School District — number crunching time that is.

Board members will meet at 7 p.m. Monday to pour over numbers in the proposed budget and 2015 tax rate.

According to FISD Superintendent Randy Johnson, who was still hammering out the details Friday, officials expect to deliver a tight but balanced budget to trustees based on the same maintenance and operation rate of $1.04 per $100 per valuation. Johnson said he didn't have a figure yet for the district's debt service rate but expected it to be less than last year.
