Bangor city councilors are expected to vote Monday night on an amended school budget – one that cuts out 130-thousand dollars from the original proposal. Two weeks ago, councilors asked the school committee to trim the $41.7 million budget in effort to hold the line on the city’s tax rate. The committee approved the additional cuts last week.With the new $41.6 million budget, 10 positions will be lost – five with retirements and five with layoffs. Some of the athletic money in the school department was also eliminated.Monday night’s city council meeting is set for 7:30 p.m.
