Included in this group are the Marketing & Community Relations and the AETC departments. This group has reduced its FY13 Budget from $1.3 million in FY12 Amended to $1.1 million, a $175k reduction or 13.7%. Well done! The overall staffing declined by one to 11 and this group has been consistently trimming itself as the size of the student enrollment has declined. In fact, over the last two years, this group has reduced expenses by $400k or 31.4%.
Likely as the result of restructuring a number of positions, the average salary and benefits for this team has decreased from $86.2 thousand to $76.7 thousand – an 8.5% decline. If the numbers are correct, then this team is showing solid fiscal leadership! Mr. Steven Alford – the taxpayers thank you and salute you!
Dr. Davis and Mr. Burbridge – take note of what this department is doing – and use it as a shining example for the rest of the organization to follow.
