SWTJC Board of Trustees approved a balanced budget on June 18, during their regular monthly meeting in Uvalde.
Highlighting the action taken, the board adopted a balanced budget of $43,117,574 for the fiscal year of 2015-2016, up $2,469,975 from the 2014-2015 budget.
“This budget cycle was very different from the past in that each vice president managed the adjustments to the budget independently and brought them back to the cabinet as a whole,” said SWTJC President, Dr. Hector Gonzales. “They had a lot of input and leeway in determining where within their area those resources should be allocated.”
During a budget workshop, which was held prior to the regular meeting Anne Tarski, vice president of finance reported to board members of five major roofs that are in dire need of repair.
According to Tarski, the roofs needing repair include Garner Hall and the Richarzs building in Uvalde, building C in Eagle Pass and the academic building in Del Rio.
“We need approximately $500,000 to replace the roofs, we propose to borrow against our certificates of deposit and then in the budget we have included a $100,000 amount to repay the loan over the next five years,” said Tarski.
