MOREHEAD CITY — The Carteret Community College Board of Trustees adopted a $26.87 million continuing budget resolution Tuesday that will guarantee bills can be paid until the N.C. General Assembly adopts its budget for the 2022-23 fiscal year, which begins July 1.
“The continuing resolution gets us into the new fiscal year,” CCC Vice President of Finance Matt Banko said during the trustees meeting in the CCC Foundation building.
The college’s budget is made up of state, county and federal funds as well as money generated through grants and proprietary funds.
The continuing resolution includes $12.9 million in state allocations, $3.97 million in county allocations and $9.97 million in grants, student aid and other institutional funds.
The resolution also includes a minimum projected revenue of $26.48 million for the 2022-23 fiscal year, but Mr. Banko said he expects that amount to increase once the state and county adopt their 2022-23 budgets.
