A proposed operating budget for the 2013 fiscal year will be presented as an information item at the December 13 meeting of the Harford Community College Board of Trustees. The proposed $46.6 million budget is less than 1% higher than the current fiscal year and includes a tuition increase of $5 per credit hour and a 2% wage increase for full and part-time employees. Citing combined state and local funding to the college that was down by $3.2 million over the past three years, the budget proposal indicates that until previous funding levels are restored, the college will focus on cost containment and revenue generation from tuition and fees.
Board members will be asked to vote on a previously introduced capital budget for next year. The proposed capital budget and capital improvement program request totals $11,865,983 in the 2013 fiscal year.
The board will hear highlights from a December 5 meeting between Harford Community College President Dennis Golladay and Dr. Robert Tomback, superintendent of Harford County Public Schools. The meeting, which included senior staff from both institutions, is one of four meetings planned each year to “consider items of mutual interest and to explore opportunities for collaboration”, according to Nancy Dysard, director of marketing and public relations for the college.
Below is the preliminary agenda for the December 13 meeting which begins at 6 p.m. in the Chesapeake Center Board Room. Preliminary agendas are subject to change.
