A flat funded education budget in Redding has been approved by the Redding Board of Education. The group was seeking a .8 percent increase of about $173,000. In order to fulfill the 0% increase budget, several cuts were approved by the group this week. They include reducing a few positions, some health insurance reductions and eliminating half-day kindergarten buses and a new retirement being announced. The Redding Board of Finance will take up the newly proposed budget at their meeting on Monday.
