After receiving just 27% of its state funding in the last two fiscal years resulting in a loss of $12.9 million in expected revenue, and a budget shortfall for this year of $6.3 million, Triton Community College directors took steps to close the budget gap.

The spending reduction measures made Feb. 21 to offset the $6.3 million funding gap include cutting travel and meeting expenses. In addition to non-personnel budget reductions totaling $950,000, retirement incentives were offered to eligible employees and a strategic hiring freeze was applied to several unfilled positions, school officials said.
