KC trustees to discuss FY18 budget, tax rate Monday


The Kilgore College Board of Trustees will meet Monday and take action on the 2018 fiscal year budget and tax rate.

In addition to the budget and tax rate for the coming year, the college will also request a waiver of $214.47 for penalty and interest from 2016 taxes from the Gregg County tax assessor-collector’s office.

The board will also consider new and updated policies in college marketing, advertising and recruitment materials and policy development and review.

College Construction, Safety and Maintenance Manager Jeff Williams is also expected to present a facilities update regarding McKinstry, which will be conducting an energy infrastructure audit across the entire campus to identify opportunities that may lead to cost savings.

Other items to be discussed include investment reports and updates on the Kilgore College Foundation board.

Before the 6:30 p.m. meeting, Kilgore College Police Chief Heath Cariker will present the college’s emergency plans during the board’s dinner at 6 p.m. in the R.E. “Sonny” Spradlin Jr. Executive Board Room in the McLaurin Administration Building.

The main KC Board of Trustees meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. on the second floor of the administration building.
