Staff WriU-r The Lslhbridgc Community College appears to be in a !a- vorable position to receive Hie amount of money it has re- quested for its 1572-73 operat- ing budget. Joe Bally, director of finance for the Alberta colleges com- mission, said he regards the budget increase projected by LOO as "very modest we are very pleased with it. 1 would say they have done a good job." The college requested a bud- get increase of 13 per cent in the coming year over the rr.illion it received last year. Mr. Bally said, however, that this did not guarantee LCC would get what it has asked for. Ho said some cuts will have to be made because the amount of money allocated by the pro- vincial government is about short of what the colleges have asked for. He said the commission re- ceived all the budget estimates from the colleges Monday, and a final decision will nol be made until May 11. Mr. Batty said the budget re- juesls of all the colleges are I 'fairly reasonable under the lircumslances" but hvme are joing lo gel less than they ask- for. The University of Lethbridge nsw has a reasonably good dea of the amount of money it can expect lo receive from the provincial government for its D72-73 budget. Dr. Bill Deckel, president of the U of L, received a "lenla- ive figure" Monday from the Alberta universilies commis- sion, the tody which dislributes the million which I he gov- ernmcnl has allocalcd for Ihe province's universities. llaugliton Thompson, actinf chairman of Ihe commission said there are "a couple o: Ihings" to be cleared up befort the stamp oi approval is plac cd on Ihc provincial grants.
