Salary increa'-'es j'jngc from II.1 iH'reent, or for those earning to 13.7 percent, or for tliose earning Divide lOqually The hoard's action came after Scott Nicol, president of the Kirkwood Faculty Assn., rescinded on behalf of the fac- ulty a proposal for across-the- board increases. Summer Class Signups On At Kirkwood Kirkwood Community col- lege will continue to accept registrations during the week of June for summer com- munity education classes in Cedar Rapids and Marion. The summer session opened June 10. Persons wishing in- formation about class offer- ings and schedules should con- tact the community education office at 398-554G. Kirkwood officials said openings remain in many classes. Included is a class in canoeing scheduled for Tues- day evenings at Kennedy high school. Class members will plan two river trips. At the board's last meeting, .Nicol recommended that tlic Maff study the jMssibilily of dividing the funds for salary increases equally among all employes. If the said to bo available for salaries were divided equally among the employes, each would have received about Nitol said after the board meeting members of the fac- ulty asked for a special meet- ing lo reconsider the proposal and voted to rescind it. Didn't Undci stand The faculty voted to support a formula combining across- the-board payments with per- incieases. Kiilliryn .McKay, pn-iiui'iil- clect of the KKA, said when the association m e m b c r s voted for across-the-board raises, many members did not understand they includ- ing other persons outside their organization in the proposal. A petition signed by 70 Kirk- wood employes stated I hat membership in the KKA is de- nied to administrative, cleri- cal, and maintenance em- ployes. It "should not, therefore, ef- fectively negotiate with the board of directors on issues of salary and-or working condi- twns which will oUi'.'rs than those Hi'.iUed to bersiiip in their the petition said.

A federal grant for construction of a wastewater operator training plant was officially accepted by the Kirkwood Community college board of directors Thursday night. The grant will pay for a pilot plants which will provide training in various wastewaler and water treatment methods. It is to be constructed on the Kirkwood campus with completion set for Jan. 1. Question Amount Directors questioned whether the the max- imum allowed the Environ- mental Protection Agency for construction of such plants, would be adequate to con- struct the facility. Mike Crawford, director of development for Kirkwood, said the amount should cover the cost since the budget was not finalized until February, and inflation was taken into account. Mileage The board set June 17 at 4 p.m. as the date for hearing presentations from two engi- neering firms interested in preparing specifications for the project. In other business, the board approved on second reading a policy allowing payment of 15 cents per mile for use of pri- vate cars on college business. It also reviewed, and let stand, an existing policy al- lowing payroll deductions for credit union, Kirkwood Foun- dation, association dues, and other organizations. The board also endorsed a dues schedule for 1974-75 pro- posed by the Iowa Council of Area School Boards, requiring Kirkwood to pay in dues. The amount was reduced from proposed by the council earlier. Dissatisfaction Board members have ex- pressed dissatisfaction with the lobbying services received from the ICASB during the last session of the legislature. The board also designated Wayne Newton as an alter- nate representative from the board eligible to vote at ICASB meetings when board President B. A. Jensen can- not. In financial matters, the board authorized payment of in regular bills, and in interim bills. It authorized payment in the following amounts for work on Iowa hall: to Universal Climate Control; to Kinderknecht A s s o c i a t es. Inc.; to Modern Pip- ing; to Acme Elec- tric and to Brown, Healey, arid Bock. Behind Schedule T h e board approved a change order in the Modern Piping contract for sprinkler heads for Iowa hall. Staff members said con- struction of Iowa hall, the community center for the col- lege, is about one week behind due to inclement weather. The building is about half finished. Staff members set June 27 as the dale for reviewing progress of the million four-story structure. Bad (Seeks The board also authorized writing off in uncollec- table checks, and payment of to the Central Adjust- ment Bureau as commission for the collection of in bad debts. The amounts represented all the bad checks received by the college since it opened eight years ago. Mrs. McKay told the board the KFA did stand by its earli- er -.tatelllellt liial '.ill' college should match the 7.5 percent increase granted !o employes by Iht- legislature. ilitftir Director W a y n c .Newton said lie felt the base for the salary increases should have been a little higher to help linj.se on the lower end of the salary schedule. j Combining the percentage I a n d across-the-board in- creases represented the "best of two be said. The directors recommended lo the staff that next year .sal- j ary increases for employes be I presented broken down ac- cording lo employment ca- tegories. Some OT administrators, in- structors, counselors, clerical and custodial employes of the college will be affected by the raises, which are retroactive to the anniversary dale of the 1974 contract. Kirkwood Airs Staff Parking Ticket Problem A crackdown on Kirkwood Community college staff members who don't pay their parking tickets is being con- templated by the college ad- ministration, the board of directors learned Thursday night. A letter from Bill Soper, president of the Student Congress, to the board noted that only nine of the 90-some tickets issued to faculty members have been paid for. Such a situation is not fair, Soper said, since students' di- plomas can be withheld from them if their fines are not paid. Supt. Selby Ballantyne said the administration had been studying the problem for about two months, even con- sidering such procedures as garnishment of wages to en- sure payment. Staff members were direct- ed to continue working on the problem. Killians introduces NV CONTOUR by Now, for the first time there's a panty hose that is shaped like you are!
