Wake County residents aren't hesitating to give their feedback on how Wake can save money in the face of next year's budget crunch.
As noted in today's article, Wake had 463 comments as of Dec. 16 to its online suggestion box. Four of the most commonly suggested ideas are going to four-day weeks, charging students to play athletics, encouraging veteran teachers to retire early and cutting administration more.
“If we get a single idea that’s worth considering, it’s been useful,” said school board member Keith Sutton, who had suggested creating the suggestion box. “We need to find out from the public what sacrifices they’re willing to make.”
