Rise in property tax offsets continued decline in state support for GCC

The Gila Community College Board last week had its first look at a hold-the-line budget, which would replace dwindling state aid with yet another boost in the property tax. The $6.4-million budget features an $89,000 decline from this year, matching one of first enrollment decreases in years, said GCC Board President Larry Stephenson. That works out to a decline of about 1.4 percent. Stephenson said, “It looks a lot like last year’s budget, with a few small improvements.”
