GCC gets good, but belated budget news
After a five-month wait, the Gila Community College board learned last week that the district is solvent after all.
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.”
