2A Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2010 Feather River Bult-tin Roundup: Feather River College trustees rnee-t Linda Satchwell Staff Writer With two Feather River Col- lege board members jokingly watching the clock so they wouldn't miss the beginning of the Giants game, the Octo- ber meeting moved along at a quick clip. Highlights included the In- formation Services Depart- ment, headed by manager Rand Groh, shedding some light on what they do for the college. They made a serious and mostly successful effort to explain themselves in language that those in attendance could comprehend. Groh, whose re- tirement is imminent, gave ku- dos to his hard working staff. Several agenda items fo- cused on money manage- ment in the wake of both the California state budget crisis and the transfer of control of the student resi- dence halls and Feather River Fitness and Recre- ation from the Foundation to the College. Loan modification College president, Ron Tay- lor, brought a two-part re- quest to the board to approve the restructuring and possible "forgiveness" of the loan that the college made to the FRC Foundation in order to repair residence halls roofs and in- frastructure. Taylor asked the board to consider extending the term of the loan and/or to "forgive" repayment. Board members seemed to fa- vor extending rather than for- giving the loan and asked that Taylor bring the matter back to them after further discussion and planning at a later date. The restructuring request was based on the fact that, of , . the original $350,000 loan amount, the roof repairs had actually cost $220,000. An ad- ditional $50,000 was needed by the Foundation for "cash flow" reasons. Taylor requested that the board authorize him to execute documents allowing for the oth- er $80,000 to be used for "addi- tional capital improvements." Specifically, there are five student rooms that are currently unoccupied, which require major internal renovations. Taylor said that, in the long run, the college would get this money back when these rooms could be occupied. Some are two-student, and others are four-student rooms. The board passed the loan restructuring request unani- mously. Tabled request for county $ In his presentation of the quarterly budget, Chief Fi- nancial Officer Jim Scoubes touched on the last minute save afforded the college when the state finally passed its budget. Taylor expanded on the topic in his remarks. He had gone to the board of supervisors to thank them for considering the college's request for a loan----or early transfer of anticipated tax revenue--and let them know that the college wouldn't be needing help at this time. However, Taylor explained at the FRC board meeting, though they were getting cer- tain deferred payments now, there were additional pay- ments that were going to be deferred until spring. And, Taylor said, the budget is still in such a state of flux, there is no certainty that the state will make good on those deferred payments later in the year. For that reason, there was the chance that the college would have to approach the county again for an advance of funds. He said he'd "hinted" as much to the supervisors at their last meeting. Fitness of the Yitness Center Athletic Director, Merle Trueblood, reported thai the Fitness Center has increased[ its membership by almost 60 per- cent since the college took over cleaning, renovating, and man- agement. Total active rneber- ship currently stands at 520. The pool, newly spic and span has been opened bat is now closed for the season and the Jacuzzi will be SODa, he said. The emphasis on cleanliness, friendliness, and organization is paying off. Trueblood said he looks for- ward to another jump in membership once the winter weather hits. Civic art Elizabeth Silva, a senior at Portola Junior-Senior High School, won the countywide competition to grace the cover of the sample ballot produced by the clerk-recorder's office. Kathy Williams sent out memos to all the schools encouraging young artists to enter. Danielle DeBoever, art teacher at both Portola and Quincy, made it a class project for her students. This is Silva's second year of art with DeBoever, and she has made art her senior project, with local artist Linda Hale as her mentor for the project. They've done their part and now you must do yours. Send in mail ballots early or show up at the polls Nov. 2 and VOTE!
