Action Items - FY07 Budget Amendment

Ms. Catherine Fisher presented the amended budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2007. She stated that there were a few corrections made to state appropriations and property taxes to more accurately reflect the current status. In terms of appropriations, the College is still waiting to hear what is going to happen in the current State's budget. She stated that the College is assuming that there is enough in contingency funds to absorb what is going to happen at the State level.

She reported that the largest adjustment in the proposal is an increase in the College's projected tuition and fees. This was due to some increase in enrollment but largely due to a reduction in the College's projected uncollectible tuition.

Ms. Fisher reported that salary and wages were reduced due to the difference in final labor agreements from the assumptions used in the preparation of the FY07 budget. She also stated that there were savings as a result of vacant positions.

Ms. Fisher reported that the services and supplies include significant adjustments in utilities, repairs/maintenance, and institutional expenses. She also stated that in addition there is a proposed increase in institutional expenditures due to underestimated expenses for print, copy, and telephone chargebacks.

She further stated that as a result the College will be adding $328,000 to the contingency line and that with this addition; the College is presenting a balance budget.

Chairman, Committee and Board Member Reports

Chairman's Report - Action Items

Approval of Consultants Invoices

Chairman Laverty requested for approval the Kolt Communications, Inc. consultant invoices.

MOVED by Trustee Brannan and supported by Trustee Proctor to approve the Kolt Communication invoices.

Trustee Pelleran asked for clarification on the 2 hours of service provided on December 21, 2006 and for the 3 hours of service provide on January 16, 2007.

Chairman Laverty responded that the service provided on December 21st was to review the documents regarding Lyn Beekman's report and that the service provided on January 16th was for legal issues, open meeting acts issues, and for presidential search issues.

Trustee Pelleran asked Chairman Laverty what authorization did he have to let Foster Swift and Kolt Communication review the Beekman report.

Chairman Laverty responded that he was authorized as the Chair of the Board to deal with the Board's legal services as necessary.

MOVED by Trustee Pelleran and supported by Trustee Canady to amend the motion on the floor removing the 2 hours of service provided on December 21, 2006 and 3 hours of service provided on January 16, 2007.

The floor was opened for discussion.

The main points in favor of the motion were:

  • Trustee Canady stated that by not having some type of work product to look at, the Board does not know exactly what it is paying for.
  • Trustee Pelleran felt that because the Board did not benefit from a work product and that there was no prior authorization from the Board those particular stated expenses should be removed.
  • Trustee Pelleran believed that the services provided on December 21st were of a personal nature and that the Board should not authorize expenditures of a personal matter. She also stated that it was not necessary to have a Public Relation person present at the January 16, 2007 Board meeting to receive the Beekman report.

The main concerns raised about the motion were:

  • Trustee Smith stated the she felt it was very clear why the consultant was here.
  • Trustee Rasmusson believed the motion had merit but since the expenses are already incurred, the Board should honor the contracts they have entered into.
  • Chairman Laverty stated that the Beekman report was not something of a personal nature but rather something that affects the entire Board, College and Community.

Discussion followed.

Chairman Laverty requested a roll call on the amendment to the main motion.

Chairman's Report - Information and Announcements

2007 Board of Trustee Election

Board Members Reports

Affirmative Action/Health Insurance - Trustee Rasmusson

Trustee Rasmusson stated that all the resolutions he is presenting to the Board are for informational purposes. He stated that he will be bringing them back for a vote at a future meeting.

Trustee Rasmusson presented a resolution that deals with provision of the United States Constitution in Article I, Section 10 that no State "shall impair the obligation of contract". Trustee Rasmusson stated that the State's Constitutional Amendment report will effect the existing provision in the College's contract. One is the College has guaranteed affirmative action programs, to LCC employees. Secondly, the College has negotiated with the employee's contracts to include genuine permanent households for health insurance. He stated that this has nothing to do with sexual preferences.

Daycare for Students - Trustee Rasmusson


Trustee Rasmusson presented a resolution requesting that the Board Liaison make a brief preliminary report with respect to the feasibility of a program of affordable daycare for student with children through leveraging College and community resources and available funding sources.

Cultural Change

Trustee Rasmusson presented a resolution that deals with Strategic Decentralization. He stated that this resolution would provide that the Board would recognize that experience in business shows that decentralization creates a more nimble and effective organization. Trustee Rasmusson said that this would not be a one time event but part of the College's on-going continuous improvement process. What he is envisioning is a culture change that the Board would adopt a Strategic Decentralization objective that would have to do with faculty and staff being charged with the responsibility and being given the authority to perform fully and effectively in their areas of work.

Trustee Rasmusson asked for the Board to review and give their feedback.

Trustee Rasmusson announced that the Finance Committee would be meeting on Monday, March 26, 2007 at 4:00 p.m.

She reported that one of the other issues that was discussed at the meeting was the Nursing shortage in Michigan. Trustee Smith stated that it was great to see that Lansing Community College was out ahead of many other institutions in terms of what the College has been able to do to strengthen and build our programs. Trustee Smith reported that they did agree as a whole to offer baccalaureate degrees with the nursing programs at the Community College level. She stated that Lansing is out ahead of the other Community Colleges in having the University Center giving students the opportunity to get a baccalaureate degree. She further stated that this does not diminish the current degrees that Lansing Community College offers for nursing.

Trustee Smith reported that Governor Granholm attended the MCCA meeting to request MCCA to agree to a tuition freeze.

Trustee Canady requested to remove last sentence of 1.10.5 "Board funds may not be expended to address an issue only applicable to one Trustee". He stated that he could envision many scenarios were it would be appropriate for the Board to retain counsel for a Trustee who has been accused of wrong doing even thought they were in the course of carrying out their functions as a Trustee and they were doing so in good faith. This sentence would preclude that.

Trustee Canady offered a friendly amendment to strike the last sentence of 1.10.5.

Chairman Laverty stated that he had already announced who made the motion and supported it. He asked Trustee Canady that they make a motion to amend.

MOVED by Trustee Canady and supported by Trustee Brannan to amendment 1.10.5 Consultants to the Board to delete the last sentence "Board funds may not be expended to address an issue only applicable to one Trustee".

Public Comment

Noel Webster:

I am a student at Lansing Community College. I would like to bring up an issue that has been going on for a year. I had a MasterCAM class last year in the Spring of 2006. It went horribly wrong from all points of view. The instructor was not knowledgeable in the subject. The equipment was poor and the software was not up to date. The software was switched mid semester and the instructor was even less knowledgeable in that. A couple of people complained and dropped the class with full reimbursement. This was done midway in the class well past the normal time. By the end out of fourteen students over half dropped out within a couple of weeks with full reimbursement. Someone in an administrative position came to us and offered us the option of getting out of the class with full credit or stay and get our lab fee reimbursed so we could get credit. I am no young kid and I am not trying to get credit for something I'm not getting. I was not happy and stated that. They sent me to the next level. I spoke with someone their and told them my concerns. I was told at that time if I was to stay in the class and take my lab fee credit, they would work with me on a credit for another class in the future. I took their word at that. There was no written agreement, just trust. Had I not been told this, I would have dropped the class because my company pays for this. I really did not learn anything. If you look at my record, I don't have a lot of classes but I do well in all of them over twenty years I have worked. I got back with the person who told me they would help me with some credit in the future. When I started my CAD class in the Fall of 2006 they said it had to be a PMMT class. I did not need any PMMT classes so they offer to let me sit in a class for free. The MasterCAM again, but they moved on to a new version so it was of no use to me. They offered a one-on-one with the instructor, but they had to get with who was seeing the program. That person was on vacation and they were supposed to get back with me within a week or so. They never got back with me so I emailed the person they told me would work with me. That person emailed me back and that person said there was nothing they could do except they were still willing to let me sit in on a MasterCAM class. That was the only alternative. This class was really no good to me. They then brushed it down to the next level and stated if I had problems to email this person. I email that person twice with no response. I then gave a phone call to that person and left a message. I did get a prompt return phone call, but it was back from the person who brushed it off on them. They told me they thought the problem has been resolved. I am not sure how they would figure that because nothing has been done. My concern is that my employer has been paying for my education and I'd like to continue that. I really learned next to nothing in that class. I was trying to get some help and be reasonable. I asked for them to drop the class from my record and reimburse me and they wouldn't do that. I am here today to state my case and make sure everybody knows what is going on. Maybe something will get done, maybe it won't.

President Cardenas asked Dean Jan Danford to follow-up with the student.

Board Evaluation

Trustee Pelleran requested that the Board take steps to fill the vacancy. She stated that in the past this has been done in the public and recommended that the Board have a Special Board meeting to put forward a plan to fill the seat.

Chairman Laverty asked Trustee Pelleran to Chair an Ad Hoc Committee and select two other Trustees to work with her on putting the Board vacancy process in place.

Trustee Pelleran asked Trustee Canady and Trustee Rasmusson to serve on the committee with her. They both agreed to serve on the Ad Hoc Committee.

Chairman Laverty stated that under the Michigan Community College act the Board vacancy must be filled immediately. He stated that the candidate selected would serve through December 31, 2007.

Trustee Pelleran asked if everyone would be agreeable to have a Special meeting to come back and set the process in two weeks.

Chairman Laverty asked the Board Secretary to survey the Board.
