Delta College trustees keep services, programs intact in 2016-17 budget - Jon Becker, the Daily News

The Delta College Board of Trustees on Tuesday adopted a 2016 budget that keeps all services and programs intact despite ongoing revenue challenges. The college’s new overall budget of $107.3 million, with $66.8 million in the general fund, reflects spending reductions totaling $1.5 million. Curbing costs and carefully aligning resources with key college initiatives has been part of Delta’s budgeting process for the past decade, officials said. The total budget is down 4 percent from last year and the general fund budget is up 2 percent, said Deb Lutz, vice president of business and finance. “Over the last 10 years we’ve seen a trend: More reliance on tuition and fees and less reliance on property taxes because they and state funding have not kept pace with inflation,” she told trustees during their dinner meeting.
