Citizens' Review Panel convenes for CCC

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- A panel of community representatives will convene to offer input to Coconino Community College about its finances and budget.
 
The meeting of the Citizens' Review Panel will be Wednesday, April 13, noon to 2 p.m., at the CCC Lone Tree Campus, 2800 S. Lone Tree Road. Subsequent meetings are scheduled for April 20, April 27, and May 4 at the same time and location.
 
The panel, made up of a wide array of community leaders and residents, will serve as an advisory group to CCC President Colleen A. Smith and will study the College's budget and finances in order to make recommendations to the CCC District Governing Board.
 
"Input through processes like the Citizens' Review Panel is essential for us to be able to best serve our county," said President Smith.
 
At the end of this analysis, the panel should be able to provide the District Governing Board some recommended actions in resolving the projected budget shortfalls of the near future in order to sustain the institution. Sustainability is the College's primary and most significant challenge.
