Such tentative budget shall be considered by the board and be subject to any revisions or amendments as may be determined by such Board, shall be adopted as the budget for the ensuing fiscal year, and no expenditures for operation and maintenance expenses in excess of the budget shall be made during such fiscal year, unless unanimously authorized and directed by the board.
