CNCC Board approves proposed budget

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

Colorado Northwestern Community College has a campus in Craig (pictured) and a campus in Rangley.

— The Colorado Northwest Community College Board of Control members at the Craig Campus approved a 2016-17 proposed budget of $1,467,087 of "total budgeted revenues," as CNCC Controller Scott Rust explained.

The proposed budget passed unopposed during the board’s regular monthly meeting at the college.

"At this point we're not budgeting any dip into the reserves," Rust said.

The proposed budget allots $45,850 for the salary of a soccer coach, in line with a plan developed earlier to add soccer to the CNCC Craig Campus.

"The planned way to grow is to bring a soccer component in," said Roger Ficken, vice president of business for CNCC.

President Russell George described the significance of the vote during the meeting.

George said the proposed budget is to be presented on June 9 to the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education.
