Beloit Student Congress plowed through multiple points of agenda during their meeting on Monday, Nov. 7.
The meeting began with a student forum featuring Ann Davies, provost and dean of college, and John Nicholas, vice president for administration and treasurer. Two main types of 2012-2013 budget projects were discussed. The ﬁrst was the expense projections. Some of the main goals include a debt service increase of $500,000, a salary/wage increase of three percent and deferred maintenance increase of 10 percent. The second was the revenue projections, which included goals of increasing the Beloit Fund by 10 percent and the comprehensive fee by 4.89 percent. Davies emphasized that the “projected increases in expenditures are conditional upon meeting our revenue targets.”
The meeting continued with announcements. Amani Edwards’12 and some of the housekeepers will be making a Thanksgiving dinner for students. Email Edwards at firstname.lastname@example.org before Nov. 20 if you plan on attending.
The meeting concluded with discussion of the COO bylaw revisions as well as a debate on the amount of funding that should go into events taking place over winter break. Voting for both of these will take place at next meeting on Monday, Nov. 14.
