Published 9:35 am Wednesday, May 25, 2016

The Brookhaven School District Board of Trustees on Tuesday accepted a proposal for the district’s audit services for fiscal years 2016 and 2017 from Joel Cunningham III CPA for $15,500 per year.

The board also abandoned the bid process for WAN and Internet services due to technical difficulties and selected state vendor AT&T. The project will be partially funded by the federal E-Rate Program, which provides discounts on eligible communications services and Internet access.
