The Alvin Community College Board of Regents reviewed a preliminary budget for the 2015-16 fiscal year during their meeting on June 25.
A proposed budget of $28.15 million, if approved, would include a 2-percent raise for faculty and staff and minor capital improvements. The proposal is a slight increase from the $27.37 million budget for the current year.
Tax rates for the proposal are not yet available because property value assessments for the ACC taxing district have not yet been finalized by the Brazoria County Tax Assessor-Collector.
Regents also approved $286,586 in adjustments to the current fiscal year budget which transferred funds from certain contract services and utility costs to fund equipment and services for several departments.
In other action the board approved the hiring of the Allied Health director and the Human Resources executive director.
Dr. Stacy Ebert was named the new director of ACC’s Allied Health programs. Ebert previously served as director for health programs in the Continuing Education and Workforce Development Department. She replaces Diane Flatland who is retiring.
The board named Karen Edwards as the new executive director of Human Resources. Edwards served in similar positions with the University of Houston-Clear Lake and Brazosport College. She will take the place of Lang Windsor who is retiring.
