WRIGHT TWP. — The Crestwood School Board received a presentation from its business consulting group at Thursday’s meeting outlining the district’s proposed 2013-14 budget, which calls for a 1 percent property tax hike.

The proposed $34.1 million budget would include a millage increase from the current rate of 9.16 to 9.2516 effective for the upcoming school year.

The budget can be reviewed on the district website beginning today.

In other business:

* The board voted unanimously to open the position of girls varsity basketball coach effective immediately. The move comes in response to personnel issues with former coach Isiah Walker. The board declined comment on the specific reasons for Walker’s ouster.

* The board agreed to sell up to $1.1 million of delinquent property taxes to Municipal Revenue Service in an attempt to collect the outstanding money.

* Superintendent Dave McLaughlin-Smith refused to comment on the recent spate of bomb scares at the high school and ensuing arrest of an alleged perpetrator because of the ongoing police investigation.
