DUNDEE—Following a budget discussion at the March 25 meeting of the Dundee board of education, the proposed budget for the 2010-11 school year was pared to $13,699,824 from $14,3368,949.
The new figure reflects a .93 percent decrease in spending and a projected tax levy increase of 6.4 percent. The current budget is $13,308,958.  The board reviewed a list of eight budget revisions followed by a list of budget decisions for consideration.
