CMC expected to vote on budget Friday

Colorado Mountain College trustees are expected to vote on a $38.9 million general fund budget at the Alpine Campus in Steamboat Springs at 9 a.m., Friday, June 7.

Under the proposed 2002-2003 budget, the district’s current 3.997 property tax mill levy remains the same.

This year’s big ticket item is a new $4 million to $6 million academic center in Edwards. Spokesperson Joe Marquez said the money will come from the college’s facilities reserve, which includes contributions of $2.5 million in the current year and next year.

Other budget increases include funds for three new full-time faculty members, computer upgrades in student labs, new positions to support a new software system, and a network infrastructure upgrade.

The college plans to offer 26 new programs or courses of study in 2002-2003 and 2003-2004, including: American West studies, commercial driver’s license, construction technology, engineering, golf and turf management, journalism, leisure studies, resort management, software development and women’s studies.

Broken down by source, local taxes provide Colorado Mountain College with 66 percent of its revenues, followed by 18 percent from tuitions and fees, and 16 percent from state reimbursements.
