BENTON HARBOR — Benton Harbor school board President Joseph Taylor said Tuesday that the Financial Recovery Agreement state officials presented to school board trustees reminds him of past agreements, and he doesn’t like it.

The proposed five-year agreement calls for the district to hire a project manager, who would also be approved by the Michigan Department of Education and Department of Treasury. The project manager’s salary would be reimbursed by the state for up to $150,000.
