Chad Campbell, President

Included for your information and review is the FY 2018-2019 Operating Budget. The spreadsheet provides a comparison of the changes among FY 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. During the April 23, 2018, Board Meeting, a brief update and implementation plan for new programs and equipment funding was provided and discussed. The following list is a brief summary of the legislative appropriations used to develop this budget.

The following funds were appropriated directly to Bridgerland:

  • SB01 – $(199,900) 1.5% Budget Reduction
  • SB01 – $(165,400) Elimination of FY17-18 One-Time Equipment
  • SB08 – $349,500 for Compensation and Benefits
  • HB08 – $7,100 for Internal Service Fund Adjustments
  • HB02 – $576,000 Market-Driven New or Expanded Programs

Direct Appropriation Subtotal – $567,300

The following funds were appropriated to Bridgerland through the Utah System of Technical Colleges (UTech).

  • SB01 – $199,900 Restoration of 1.5% Budget Reduction (see above)
  • HB02 – $366,200 Equipment (ongoing funding)

Appropriation through UTech Subtotal – $566,100

The Board of Directors recommended a $.05/hour tuition increase that was subsequently approved by the Board of Trustees that results in an estimated increase in tuition revenue of $39,100.

Implementation of the new funds appropriated by the Legislature include a 2.5 percent Cost of Living increase, along with the associated salary-driven and non-salary-driven benefit increases.

In addition, Bridgerland received funding for a new Paramedic Program ($299,300) and expansion of the existing Information Technology and Web & Mobile Development Programs ($276,700). The net increase in ongoing equipment funds is $200,800, which has been prioritized by Bridgerland Administration from equipment requests submitted by the respective department heads.

This budget also includes the repurposing of existing funds as a result of internal efficiencies and natural attrition. In addition to the discussion and subsequent approval of the proposed “appropriated” budget, a brief discussion of the other sources and uses of revenue at Bridgerland will also be provided.
