Legislature Supports TC3 Funding Requests

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

In two separate unanimous votes, the Legislature approved two funding proposals from Tompkins Cortland Community College, approving a one-time discretionary supplemental appropriation of $83,200 from the County’s Contingent Fund to implement a Service Management Modernization Program during the coming academic year. The allocation comes outside of the budget process, and does not require approval and matching appropriation from joint College sponsor Cortland County. The Legislature also supported the College’s request to appropriate $100,000 of its surplus funds to replace lost tuition-based revenue for the current academic year.

Last week, the Legislature’s budget committee recommended adoption of the College’s 2017-2018 operating budget, which includes a 1% increase in sponsor support. The budget will not come up for Legislature consideration until after a public hearing June 20th.
