BCC trustees hired Felisa Benton as library technical as
sistant and. on a split vote, accepted the resignation of
physical plant employee Eugene Wayne Boyd. Trustee
Dean Walters voted against accepting it.
Trustees also discussed temporary space needs for
(he aquaculture program, budget concerns and the col
lege's recent state audit.
BCC is seeking funds from the state legislature and
the U.S. Economic Development Administration for a
permanent building for the aquaculture and recreational
grounds management programs, but still needs space
If funds become available. President Michael Reaves
has proposed erecting a metal shell building with brick
veneer front that can he used in the short-term to house
fish tanks and converted later into a new maintenance
lie ihiiika iuc facility would uni around $40.1)00 to
erect, which happens to be about (he cost of a sign the
building and grounds committee would like to sec
placed at the campus enirance on the U.S. i7 bypass
when funds are available.
While the audit was good overall, state auditors
made recommendations regarding weaknesses in cash
management and internal controls. Auditors found that a
number of deposits had not been made in a timely man
ner as required by state laws that require daily deposit of
cash receipts; student fee overpayments had not been re
funded by check, but set aside for cash reimbursement,
and large-sum checks drawn against a state account for
payment to vendors had been outstanding for extended
periods of time.
In its response, the college said the delayed deposits
were the result of "poor judgment" by business office
staff in setting daily priorities and that staff was being
retrained and new procedures established to ensure com
BCC also said that the outstanding checks situation
"resulted from unique circumstances and were isolated
examples." Its entire cash receipts and disbursements
functions are being reviewed and recomircnded im
provements will be shared with the auditor's office and
state Department of Community Colleges.
