ECC begins layoffs; 15 positions eliminated so far - Madhu Krishnamurthy, Daily Herald

Elgin Community College has sent layoff notices to 15 employees and more terminations are expected because of anticipated state funding shortfalls, an official said Friday. Earlier this summer, the college board adopted an $80.3 million 2017 operating budget, including reductions to stave off a projected $2.7 million deficit next fiscal year. Officials estimated at the time anywhere between 10 and 30 full-time and part-time support personnel positions could be affected by layoffs, saving roughly $482,000. "We will still be within that range," said Sharon Konny, ECC vice president of business and finance. "The majority of the positions eliminated were part-time."
