Two people were added to the committee that will help redraw Fayette County school attendance zones when its membership was approved by the school board at its meeting Monday night.
David O'Neill, county property valuation administrator, and James Brown, a Bryan Station High School parent, bring the committee's membership to 27. They include school board members, business leaders, Equity Council members, other parents, Realtors, home builders, principals and a city planning official.
The committee is set to convene for the first time at a public meeting at 3 p.m. Tuesday in the Buckner Room of the Lexington Herald-Leader, 100 Midland Avenue. Its work is expected to take for at least seven months to complete.
After Monday's school board meeting, Superintendent Tom Shelton said he would present a plan to cut $20 million from the district's 2014-15 budget during a special board meeting at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.
