Northwest College Oks Construction Funding Plan

POWELL, Wyo. (AP) — The Northwest College board has approved a plan to raise $5 million for a new classroom building from four sources, and none involve raising taxes.

The Associated Press reports trustees agreed on the plan last week.

It calls for taking $2 million from the college’s reserves, charging students a $5-per-credit fee beginning next year, borrowing about $1.2 million from a Park County financial institution and getting $1.2 million through donations to the NWC Foundation.

Four trustees voted in favor. The other three were absent.

The $5 million is what the college needs to get nearly $9.4 million the Legislature set aside for the proposed Yellowstone Academic and Workforce Services Building.

It would have nearly 50,000 square feet including classrooms, labs, faculty offices and a 300-seat conference facility.
