BISD announces freeze on spending
BEAUMONT - KFDM News has learned the Beaumont school superintendent is cracking down on spending to help reduce what administrators call a multi-million dollar deficit.
KFDM has obtained a memo Dr. Timothy Chargois issued on Friday. It contains directives, including a purchasing freeze except for emergencies, safety or maintenance.
Also, supervisors cannot grant overtime without the superintendent's approval. His directive calls for limits on extra duty pay and no travel or professional development expenses that require the district to spend money or process expenses.
