College trustees look to adopt budget

August 24, 2013

Howard College trustees are expected to formally adopt a budget and tax rate for the coming fiscal year when they meet at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday in the student union building's Tumbleweed Room.
College employees would see their annual income increase by at least $1,200 under the new budget.
Faculty can expect annual salary increases of between $1,389 and $1,857, depending on their contracts, while other employees will see significant pay raises, also, College President Dr. Cheryl Sparks said.
In addition, three teaching positions which had been left vacant after recent resignations — history/government, speech and computer sciences — will be restored and staffed during the coming college year.
The salary increases follow two years of belt-tightening by college officials in the wake of drastically reduced state appropriations.
Over that time, the state's outlay to Howard was reduced by about 20 percent. In response, the college froze salaries and new hires eliminated some positions and, in some cases, combined job duties.
