Borough adopts new budget

The Fairbanks North Star borough assembly has approved a new budget totaling 159 million dollars.

48 point three million dollars of that will go to the school district.

That's 440 thousand dollars less than the district had requested.

During a weekend budget work session, 1 point 3 million dollars had been added back to school funding.

The Assembly also voted to increase the funding for recycling programs.

That means the university may be able to continue its recycling program after all.
