Yavapai College budget $2.2 million less than last year’s - Max Efrein, Daily Courier

Yavapai County taxpayers won’t be seeing any increased hits to their pocketbooks from the county’s community college this coming fiscal year. During a special budget hearing and adoption meeting on Tuesday, May 10, the Yavapai College District Governing Board unanimously approved an $81 million district budget for fiscal year 2016-17. This is $2.2 million less (2.7 percent) than last year’s budget, and college officials did not seek an increase in property tax levy — which was increased 2 percent last year. Overall, 72 percent of the budget funds went toward education expenses, 16 percent went toward economic development and 12 percent are for cultural expenses.
