Waiting Game Continues For Cumberland County Schools

Posted July 13, 2001 4:53 a.m. EDT

— Cumberland County commissioners have offered a $3.1 million compromise to the Board of Education.

That amount equals more than half of the $5.7 million request by school board members. If the proposal is accepted, the money would help save middle-school sports.

On Friday, the school board said it will consider the proposal in a special meeting on Monday.

For now, a mediator says an impasse will not be declared.
