SubjectBudget Update for FY 2011-12 and Notice of Public Hearing on the 2011-12 Riverside Community College District Budget
Recommended ActionIt is recommended that the Board of Trustees announce that: 1) the proposed 2011-2012 Budget will be available for public inspection beginning September 8, 2011, at the Office of the Vice Chancellor, Administration and Finance; and 2) the public hearing will be held at 6:00 p.m. at a Special Board meeting on September 13, 2011, to be followed by the adoption of the 2011-2012 Final Budget. It is further recommended that the Board authorize staff to issue the appropriate public notice relative to these dates.

Background Narrative:

At the August 2, 2011, Resources Committee meeting, staff lead discussion of the FY 2011-12 State Budget for the California Community Colleges and the implications thereof for RCCD. To facilitate this discussion, attached are two documents for the Committee’s review:

1. “July 2011 Update: Enacted Budget” prepared by Dan Troy, Vice Chancellor for Fiscal Policy in the State Chancellor’s Office; and

2. “The FY 2011-12 State Budget for the CCC” prepared by District staff


Additionally, in accordance with Title 5, Section 58300, we must indicate the date, time and location at which the Board will hold a public hearing concerning the Final Budget proposal. This date was originally set for September 20th when the Board approved the Tentative Budget, as at that point in time, it appeared the State might again have a late budget. Also, and pursuant to Title 5, Section 58301, the Final Budget proposal must be made available for inspection three (3) days prior to the public hearing, which thus was also set in June for September 15th. We planned to use the Office of the Vice Chancellor, Administration and Finance, for this purpose, and this location will not be changed. However, now that we have a State budget, we must determine new dates for the public hearing and public inspection, as per Title 5 said public hearing must occur on or before September 15th. Finally, we will, as is customary, publish this information in The Press Enterprise.
