The Hutchinson Community College Board of Trustees heard a report on the proposed budget for the next fiscal year at its July meeting.
Julie Blanton, Vice President of Finance & Operations, presented the College’s 2019-2020 budget proposal at the meeting.
There is the expectation of increased State funding to go along with a planned tuition increase of $2.00 per credit hour. For Reno County residents, the $10.00 per credit hour reduction remains in place. County valuation is slated to increase by 1.39% allowing the College to budget a .6% reduction of its mill levy for the coming fiscal year. Since 2010, the general levy has been lowered by approximately 2 mills and is the lowest it has been in the last ten years.
In additional board business, the Board approved payment of College bills, approved the academic catalog for the 2019-20 school year and set meeting dates for the coming year.
The next meeting of the board will be on Thursday, August 8. The meeting will be at 7:00 p.m. in the Shears Technology Center Justice Theater. The public is invited to attend.
