Should Birmingham's city council throw a $15-million life preserver to the board of education? Council President Pro Tem Steven Hoyt thinks so or he at least wants the council to consider the idea.
Hoyt put an item on this Tuesday's city council agenda to consider the idea of the city loaning or setting aside about $15-million to give the board of education the state-required 1 month worth of reserves, about $17-million total.
The lack of that reserve account is one of the reasons the state has given in taking over the school system.
