The Northern Wyoming Community College District Board of Trustees acknowledged receipt of the preliminary budget for fiscal year 2011-2012.
Sheridan College Vice President and CFO Cheryl Heath says that while the budget is still very preliminary, there are a few changes that can be expected.
Heath says that the preliminary budget also includes flat raises for employees.
Heath said that prior to their June Board meeting, there will be a budget workshop to go over the numbers, and that the budget will be formally adopted at their meeting in July.
It should be noted that the NWCCD Board elected to move their meetings for June, August, and September to the third Wednesday of the month. This was done so that the Board meetings would not conflict with the 3rd Thursday Street Festivals in Downtown Sheridan.
Typically the College District Board meets monthly on the third Thursday. The July meeting date did not have to be changed; as per state statute, the College District must adopt their budget on the third Wednesday of the month.
