BCC Budget Debated
6/21/2012 (Updated 11:09:28 PM)An item on the Broome County Legislature's agenda created a bit more controversy Thursday evening.
The legislature approved the upcoming year's proposed budget for BCC.
However, prior to the approval, several legislators suggested a two-percent increase be given to the college.
In the end, the proposal was voted down, something that disappointed Democrat Dan Reynolds.
"The two percent is roughly $135,000 and that would support two positions," he said. "It's a modest request and I thought it was perfectly appropriate to do that at this point."
Legislators did suggest they may revisit giving more money to BCC later in the calendar year.
