Legislature Approves TC3 Operating Budget, Roof Replacement Project, and Child Care Center

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

The Legislature took five separate actions regarding Tompkins Cortland Community College (TC3). All were approved by unanimous vote.

Following a public hearing, it approved adoption of the College’s $41.6 million 2016-17 Operating Budget. The Budget contains no increase in the sponsoring counties’ contribution from current-year levels, and must also be approved by the Cortland County Legislature.

Legislators also approved an increase in the College’s current year Operating Budget, to incorporate an $831,941 increase in revenue from an increase in concurrent enrollment, enabling such revenue to be used for operating purposes. The modification has no effect on the sponsoring counties’ share.

The Legislature endorsed the Tompkins Cortland Community College roof replacement project, following severe damage incurred to a section of the roof during a significant rain/wind storm in early May. The project must also be approved by the Cortland County Legislature. The estimated $3.5 million cost will be borne half by State University of New York emergency funds and half by the County sponsors, and the Legislature formally agreed to secure funding for Tompkins County’s portion of the local share (63% based on proportional student enrollment from the two counties.) In a related action, the Legislature authorized issuance of up to $1.1 million in serial bonds and notes to pay for facility and infrastructure improvements at the College related to the roof reconstruction project.

The Legislature went on record in support of the TC3 Child Care Center project, which will construct a stand-alone child care center adjacent to the College’s main campus building. The $4 million project will be funded through $1 million in State grants, $1.5 million in SUNY Capital Project Funds, and a $1.5 million local share, through private funds already received (no County sponsor cost.)
