(Neb)-WNCC Budget Pushes Tax Request Up 2-1/2% To $13-M
SCOTTSBLUFF - The Western Nebraska Community College Board of Governors has approved a budget for the new year that was reshaped over the past three months to reflect a $200,000 loss in state aid and no growth in the school's property tax base.
WNCC Vice President of Finance Bill Knapper told KNEB radio it was one of the toughest budgets he's helped put together in the last ten years, with college president Dr Todd Holcomb and his cabinet cutting almost $1.7-million dollars out of the operating budget after telling the board in June they knew their original proposal wasn't going to work.
Knapper said the WNCC operations budget is basically the same as last year, but that the property tax request is up about 2-1/2% to nearly $13-million dollars, erasing last year's decrease in the mill levy.
