LCCC declares financial emergency to allow job cuts - Kristine Galloway, Wyoming Tribune Eagle

The Laramie County Community College Board of Trustees on Wednesday declared a financial emergency at the college. The declaration follows three months of work from the college’s employees to cut $2.5 million out of LCCC’s budget for fiscal year 2018, which is the 2017-18 academic year. The trustees voted unanimously – although hesitantly – to approve the financial emergency. Trustee Carol Merrell was absent. Chairman Ed Mosher said, “I do not take this lightly. I think back to a time many, many, many years ago when this was declared, and we all wound up – and I say ‘we all’ as employees – we all wound up with certified mail saying we were terminated.”
