Doreen Perez noted that monies were saved this year through various means; decreased travel, purchasing H1N1 nasal mists rather than syringes, ordering less supplies not needed and releasing a nurse hired for assistance with the increased load during the H1N1 season.
Student Government is requesting an increase of $1.11.
The increase would assist in funding a fitness coordinator, group fitness instructor and student staff as well as other operating expenses (supplies, furniture, equipment and brochures) for the Student Wellness Center, expected to open in February 2012.
It was noted that Student Government would like to consider building out an additional 5,000 sq ft utilizing this year’s fee revenues rather than purchase equipment.
The next meeting is scheduled for October 28 at 8:30 am in the temporary President’s Conference Room (1/1701).
