Legislature Approves Adoption of TC3 Operating Budget

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

The Tompkins County Legislature, without dissent (Legislator Henry Granison abstained; Legislator Dan Klein was excused), approved adoption of the Tompkins Cortland Community College operating budget for the coming academic year.  Once again this year, the nearly $40.8 million budget contains no increase in sponsor support.  The budget contains total sponsor support of $4,650,364), split between the two counties based on proportional student enrollment—64% ($2,976,233) from Tompkins County and 36% ($1,674,131) from Cortland. 

Both sponsoring counties must agree on the level of sponsor support, and Legislators have noted that they would have liked the County to be able to contribute more, but that Cortland County has clearly indicated its unwillingness to increase support.    Budget chair Michael Lane noted, “We have to adopt the same budget.  TC3 has requested a budget with no increase.”  Legislator Rich John thanked the college for its work on thie budget.  “It is a jewel of our community…and we need to protect that,” he said.

The resolution will take effect upon the adoption of a concurrent resolution by the Cortland County Legislature.
