FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP — After voting twice Monday to pass a $22.7 million budget to avoid shutting down operations, Southern Columbia Area School Board will have to vote again because a motion to adopt the spending plan wasn’t worded correctly.

Superintendent James Becker said board members realized after Monday’s meeting that a revote on the budget wasn’t worded as a motion to pass the 2020-2021 spending plan in the amount of $22,783,341. He said the motion must be properly worded and voted on again at a special meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday.
