Kilgore College president pitches balanced budget - Glenn Evans, Longview News-Journal

College President Brenda Kays outlined a $42.8 million proposed spending plan for the coming school year on Monday that balances without dipping into Kilgore College reserve funds. The budget, which she hopes trustees will approve during their August meeting, would draw almost $6.4 million from taxpayers living in the seven school districts in the college's taxing district. Kays proposed keeping the tax rate at this year's level of 17.5 cents per $100 property valuation. Projected tuition will add another $1.1 million to the plan, while state funds are anticipated at $12.6 million. "This budget does not include a raise for employees," Kays said, noting 2017-18 will be the third school year of no employee pay hikes.
