Heartland OKs 'austere' budget amid state funding uncertainties - Lenore Sobota, The Pantagraph

Although the operating budget of almost $33.9 million approved Tuesday by Heartland Community College trustees is 2.7 percent higher than last year's, officials called it "very austere." The fiscal year 2017 budget for the fiscal year that began July 1, is balanced, but “uncertainties continue,” said Doug Minter, vice president of business services. The budget is based on state funding being restored to historical levels of the past 20 years, according to college officials. The budget anticipates receiving $2.5 million from the state for the current fiscal year, which would be about a 2.3 percent decline from last year.
