Meeting Notes - November 1, 2016
Cheu and Cruz welcomed the members to the first meeting of the academic year. The team introduced themselves.
Cheu and Cruz reviewed the Charge, Goals, Ground Rules, Principles, & Training of Campus Budget Team Members.
The notes were approved.
Cheu informed the team that the 2016-17 Adopted Budget is posted to the web site. As it is 124 pages she invited the team to review it at their leisure.
The team reviewed the 2016-17 Board Of Trustees Adopted Budget Presentation which provided a concise overview of the main points of the 2016-17 adopted budget.
Cheu made the following points during her presentation.
The ongoing decline in enrollment that the majority of districts, including FHDA, are experiencing has impacted the budget. 100 FTES equals approx. $500,000 in revenue. Fall quarter enrollment is currently tracking at a 5 – 6% decrease from the prior year. Current goals are to stabilize enrollment. The instructional division in coordination with the institutional research department has been performing considerable data analysis to assist in making strategic enrollment decisions. FTES and productivity are equally important to the fiscal well-being of the district. Ongoing costs are impacted by items such as COLA; PERS/STRS; enrollment; minimum wage increases etc. Largest difference to the tentative and adopted budget is the slight increase (138) in FTES. Property tax is based on statewide revenues not local property tax revenues.
Cheu gave an overview of the Capital Outlay Project Fund and presented a document showing previous expenses and current project expenses. Cheu also presented a spreadsheet of proposed new projects explaining that the list had already been approved by the Facilities Committee. The team approved forwarding the list to College Council.
