COLLEGE REGENTS LOWER TAX RATE, GIVE 3% SALARY INCREASE

The Board of Regents of the Galveston Community College District adopted the 2017 property tax rate at a special meeting of the board on Friday September 22, 2017. For the sixth consecutive year the Regents lowered the College’s tax rate by adopting a $0.166188 per $100 of taxable property. The new tax rate will support a budget for 2017-2018 of $21,454,596 and provide a 3% salary increase for eligible full-time employees.

The new tax rate and budget will fund programs, faculty, staff, and facilities for 2,259 students that enrolled for the 2017 fall semester after a delayed start on September 5 due to Hurricane Harvey. The Second Start enrollment period is currently underway with an October 2 start date.
