College of the Mainland
Board of Trustees
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, April 19, 2011

The College of the Mainland Board of Trustees on Monday tabled action regarding the selection of a firm to provide architectural services for projects under the college’s 2011 Bond Election.

Voters will decide on the bond issue, which totals $86,173,555, at the May 14 election. The college board did not discuss the item, which included engaging SHW as the architectural firm for bond projects, if the measure is passed.

The college board voted unanimously to appoint Scott Turnbrough as a multi-media designer in the Marketing and Communications Department.

The college board voted unanimously to appoint Chris Carpenter as webmaster in the Marketing and Communications Department.

The college board took no official action, but reached a consensus to proceed on the installation of additional handicap parking spaces for the college.

The college board passed the first reading of policy GB, which provides for regulations concerning public complaints, to the full board for further action.

The college board voted unanimously to approve a fee reduction amendment to the interlocal tax agreement with Galveston County. The amendment will reduce the per parcel fee charged for collection services by the Galveston County Tax Office from $0.32 per parcel to $0.27 per parcel.

The board met in executive session regarding several items, including the disposition of an employee grievance, a proposed real estate purchase, and the contract of COM President Dr. Michael Elam. Action from the items will be available at a later date.

All members were present at the meeting. Agenda
