25 January 2005

Present: Hines, Sparks, Huckins, Fahey, Mathis, Mackey, Crangle, Hage, Bernier, Moore, McCool, Landry.

No FBRC report was given as there had been no meeting on which to report.

Julie reported on the UPC. Charged by the president to make recommendations for action from examination of five key documents (listed in previous minutes), the UPC will finalize their recommendations at the next meeting and submit them to Dr. Wharton. The cabinet is working in parallel with the UPC to develop a list of budget needs for next year. The cabinet will send those needs to the UPC, from which they will come to the CBC.

Barbara Fahey gave an energy report by reviewing two handouts; Utilities Projections for 2005, and Utilities Forecast FY2006-2008, which led to an extensive energy discussion. Substantial price increases are predicted in fuel oil and electricity that will continue to exceed our budget. Richard emphasized the need for two types of conservation – capital improvements and changes in behavior. Waste management is another potential problem. With only two landfills left in the state of New Hampshire, we may face a future crisis in the disposal of our solid waste.

Bill reviewed FY06 budget prep. We requested a 6.7% increase from the board and hope that we will end up with 3%. Judy built a model based on 3% that does not include utilities and strategic plan priorities, which could mean $400K to $800K more to the budget.

Bill also began a discussion about comparator data, beginning with costs and financial aid, which will continue into the next meeting. Nancy will send out the comparator charts via email for review.

The next CBC meeting is Tuesday, February 8 at 8am in the HUB Student Senate Room (119).
