IECC approves $28.9 million budget
FAIRFIELD - The Illinois Eastern Community Colleges board approved a budget for the upcoming year at its monthly meeting earlier this week at Frontier Community College.

The total budget is $28.91 million, against a projected $29.59 million in revenue. The budget is down from last year, said CEO Terry Bruce, largely because of a continuing reduction in money from the state.

The largest income will be $14.44 million from student tuition and fees, followed by $12.18 million from state money.

The largest expenditure is salaries, costing $15.97 million. The next largest expense is miscellaneous expenses, totalling $7.48 million.

One income source is the local tax levy. The projected total is $4.11 million. No hearing is required, as the total is less than 105 percent of the previous year's total.

The board also approved a financial audit from CliftonLarsonAllen, LLP. They received a clean report.

The other numbers were in terms of people attending school.

Enrollment was 31,188, with students taking 136.303 credit-hours. Of those students, 64 percent were in district.

These numbers are lower than last year, said Bruce, following a state- and nation-wide trend in declining college enrollment.

The district awarded 377 associate degrees in transfer programs, 230 associate degrees in career and technical education programs, and 552 certificates in the 2013 fiscal year.

The next meeting is 7 p.m. Oct. 5 at LTC.


• Approved an affiliation agreement with Crawford Memorial Hospital for the associates degree in nursing program.

• Purchased a CNC machine for the welding program at LTC for $15,595.45 from Gano Welding Supply of Charleston. The equipment will allow students to practice on the equipment and provide instructors with a faster way to cut materials needed for daily supplies and various projects.

• Received approval for concealed firearms courses from the Illinois Community College Board for two of its four colleges. The schools will provide the courses once all four schools have been approved. There will be a $130 fee in addition to tuition costs.
