In The Region:

Cuyahoga County Community College will ask voters in November for a    tax increase. The college’s board of trustees have approved a 0.9 mill increase to go along with its 1.2 mill levy renewal. Tri-C president, Alex Johnson says the increase is necessary to replace cuts in state funding and a drop in local property taxes. If the levy fails, Johnson says the college would be forced to make about $40 million in cuts.

“It would mean, for example, significant program closures. It would mean for example, the college would no longer provide the type of educational experience that county residents have become accustomed to. It would mean for example that we would have to eliminate critical positions at the institution. So the outcomes of a failed levy could be drastic, not only to the institution, but to the community at large.”

Johnson says for every dollar invested in Tri-C, $10 are returned to the local economy.                                             If the levy is approved, it would cost the owner of a $100,000 home in Cuyahoga County an additional $2.63 a month.

Listener Comments:

It would mean that maybe you should raise tuition, and cut spending, one would assume.
