|3 - Planning & Fall 2005 Schedule (Budget / Facilities Projections||Mr. Burke noted this would be a discussion on this year's budget which will lead
to next year's budget. This will allow communication in a more broad way. Our
intent is not to scold but rather to inform and point to areas we need to work on.
Mr. Burke asked Ms. Brooks to join us. She worked on the details. Mr. Burke
referred to the handouts - 2004-2005 Budget Review Summary I&G - which
compares expenditures versus actuals. Mr. Burke summarized the projected
variances by account of $10,000.00 or more which included overall instruction
savings, net academic support savings, net student services savings, total
institutional support savings and total PPD savings. Dr. Huerta noted all
divisions needed to keep to the 10% increase. Mr. Burke noted Dr. Chieffo and
Ms. Brooks would be happy to help. A discussion followed on the 10% limit.
Mr. Burke noted a few salary savings monies would be used to add to the pool of
money for furniture. He noted a lot of the BRR requests were for furniture. Mr.
Burke would like to recommend using some money to cover BRR furniture
requests. Also, he would like to move $75,000 to the CEO Office to handle the
bond election. Mr. Burke noted Dr. Huerta approved reallocating Ann
Morgan's salary saving for the ABC Dean and for customized training. Mr.
Burke noted the price of the portables has dropped enough that the college is
looking to purchase eight portables. It will save $22,000. Mr. Burke continued
with building renewal and replacement requests. He referred to handout which
he noted was not in priority order. He recommends those who have "furniture"
in the last column work with Larry Cammack's office to get ordered. These will
be covered with savings. Those with "work order" should put in a work order
with facilities support. Those with "BRR" will be referred to NMSU for project
estimations. Those with "major" are projects that would require significant
relocation of staff and will need to be looked at. Work in Technical Studies and
the Workforce Center will likely be handled as a separate major renovation
