Money was on the minds – and agenda – of the Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Education when it met on Tuesday.
The board took up the matters of development fees and wages and salaries. A public hearing on a proposal to raise developer fees took place and approved raising fees for residential development from $4.08 to $4.79 per square foot, for new residential construction, and commercial/industrial development from $0.66 to $0.78 per square foot of chargeable covered and enclosed space for the categories of new commercial/industrial construction.
Also at Tuesday’s meeting, the board discussed and took action on salary increases for GGUSD management employees and board of education members alike.
The board approved a 4.2 percent salary increase on the 2020-21 base pay for management employees, including assistant superintendents and the superintendent as well as board members effective April 19.
The next board meeting is set for Tuesday, May 3. The GGUSD is a K-12 district serving most of Garden Grove and portions of Anaheim, Cypress, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana, Stanton and Westminster.
