The Tyler County Board of Education approved the $15.954 million budget Monday night when no one spoke for or against the measure or asked any questions concerning the budget.
Tyler County Schools Treasurer Jeff Davis opened the public budget hearing by reading the state laws concerning the reading of the budget and the time frame for the hearing after it had been made available to the public. He stated that ample time would be allowed for anyone who would wish to address the budget or question any part of it. He then asked if anyone had anything to say or any questions. When no one spoke, he said the budget hearing was closed. The board then voted unanimously to approve it.
The board also approved provisions in the budget for public library funding for 2014-2015 in the amount of $17,920 for Sistersville and $17,835 for Middlebourne. Also, $22,800 was also approved for the County Extension Office Funding.
The board granted permission to declare Bus #19 and Bus #31 as surplus. Davis said the buses would be sold by public bid notice.

She said he had offered to come to Tyler County and present the workshop for all board members and since there has been two changes on the board, she is trying to set a date where everyone can attend. She said as soon as she knows when it will be, she will communicate the information to the board members. She also said Howard
