There's that budget thing we needed to pass

News this week from the Brockville Recorder and Times the Upper Canada District School Board finally passed its 2009-10 budget at a special July 15 meeting.
I'm disappointed in this coverage. It's a standard budget story, describing dollars in and dollars out, etc. That's important information.
Where's the explanation for why this budget was passed 15 days after the Ministry of Education deadline? The deadline is very clearly set at June 30 of every calendar year and there's no explanation as to why this board -- the only one not to meet this year's deadline -- wasn't able to do this before deadline.
