CHIPLEY — The Washington County School Board held a budget hearing and a special meeting Tuesday.

The budget hearing was the first in a series of hearings that will continue Monday at 5:05 p.m. at the Administration Building in Chipley and conclude with a final hearing on Sept. 9.

The district is proposing a millage of 7.538 mills to supply a $92.649,792 budget for 2013-14. That proposed rate includes a 1.5 mill property tax for capital outlay projects, including a number of construction and remodeling efforts.

The new Kate M. Smith Elementary School is one of those projects.

Following the budget hearing, the board heard a presentation from GCA Services Group representatives Don Clark, Mark Ryerson and Anthony Ardovino.

GCA Services Group is a provider of janitorial and custodial services that bid on the K-12 cleaning contract for the Washington County School District. GCA Services Group was awarded the bid following the presentation.

“We are there to provide a clean, safe environment for our children,” Clark told the board. The company has offices in Pensacola and Panama City and the company is headquartered in Knoxville, Tenn.
