Board Authorizes Proposed Budget Statement for 2010-2011

Omaha, NE – Metropolitan Community College's tax levy won't increase during the 2010-2011 budget year.

Metro's Board of Governors approved the budget Tuesday night. Jim Grotrian is the Executive Vice President for Metro. He says with the increase in students and the decrease of state support, the administration was pleased with the budget. Grotrian says the board agreed to maintain Metro's tax levy at the same rate as last year. In a year of tremendous growth for the college, Grotrian says they feel good about being able to hold down expenses and still provide a world class college education for the community.

The MCC Board of Governors represents five districts. The board governs the college, sets policy, approves the budget and sets the college's tax levy.
