Proposed cuts to sheriff’s office vex county council

first_imgThe Clark County council made no decisions on how to balance the county’s finances during a Tuesday afternoon work session. However, it used the meeting to express concerns about new debt financing and cuts to the sheriff’s office included in the proposed 2017-2018 budget, while also disagreeing over how to address its recurring financial shortfall.The budget, put together by Clark County Manager Mark McCauley and his staff, includes more than $21.6 million in cuts, funding adjustments and tax increases to balance the county’s finances.One issue that councilors expressed unease with is using $7.5 million in short-term debt financing to fund information technology infrastructure, including a network security project and an upgrade to financial management software.Budget Director Adriana Prata described the projects as “truly critical needs.” She told the council that with interest rates and inflation rates currently low, the project could be financed with only 1.5 percent to 2 percent interest. She said that the county’s current financial management software system is badly outdated.“We can’t keep up properly with technological changes,” she said. “It really is a system on life support.”Councilor David Madore said that he understood arguments for the projects, but suggested they could be funded with other savings and new revenue elsewhere in the budget rather than new debt.last_img read more

Parents can leave tuition money in GET for now; new 529 college savings plan delayed

first_imgA state committee that manages a prepaid tuition savings plan for college-bound students said it expects to give its customers a new investment option by this summer — but in the meantime, account-holders have until at least Sept. 1 to pull out their money without incurring state penalties.Some members of the committee that oversees the state’s Guaranteed Education Tuition (GET) plan had hoped to set up a 529 college savings plan by the end of this year. Now, it’s more likely the savings plan will be in place by the summer. Because it’s taking longer than expected, the deadline to pull out of the program also has been extended — it’s either Sept. 1, or 60 days after the 529 savings plan opens, whichever is later.Washington is one of the few states in the country to offer a prepaid tuition plan, which allows parents to buy tuition “units” in advance. One hundred units are guaranteed to cover the cost of tuition and fees at the state’s most expensive public school, and the program is based on the idea that tuition would always go up in price.But in 2015, the state Legislature voted to lower tuition for two consecutive academic years. This year, a year of undergraduate, in-state tuition and fees at the University of Washington’s Seattle campus — typically one of the state’s most expensive public schools — is $10,503, down from $12,168 in 2014-15.The GET committee responded by freezing the payout value of a GET unit to $117, then giving a refund to those who paid $163 or more per unit — the cost of GET units at their peak.last_img read more

Business sector activated will meet Government this week for new strategies

first_img ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, June 26, 2017 – Providenciales – Two hundred and sixty members of the TCI business community were today represented by the Hotel and Tourism Association (TCHTA) and the Chamber of Commerce when the two organizations met with media to say they are ready to partner for action against the surge in violent crime.Speaking at the meeting, Nikheel Advani, TCHTA President said “we don’t have a serious problem when we’re the lowest crime destination. It hasn’t impacted us today. That is why we’re here. We need action and we need action now to just make sure that we can preserve what we’ve built. We’ve all worked hard; the community, the government, the private sector. We’ve all worked hard to make this one of the best islands in the world, not just in the Caribbean. So if we let things go, it only takes one weak link for this to fall apart.”Also speaking was Kyle Smith, President of the Chamber of Commerce, who urged community participation, saying “This community, if we stand together and hold hands and speak out on this, I am sure we can get an instant response. And sometimes that takes being a bit more aggressive in your voice.”Meetings with their memberships will happen from tonight and by the end of the week, the groups will have a face to face with the Governor, Premier, and Commissioner of Police about the crime problem in Grace Bay. The case of Kevin Newman, who was on Friday shot while near his resort in Grace Bay has spawned international headlines but gotten locals fired up about more serious strides to abate crime.The Hotel and Tourism Association says there are five points which top their list of must-dos, including greater synergy for more openness for better intelligence sharing, consistency in that communication and a plan that is tracked for performance on a week to week basis.The group expects that whatever is agreed upon in that meeting with the government this week will be implemented by Monday.“From those meetings, for the association itself, we are looking for, through that partnership, a minimum of five tangibles that we can easily implement next week.” Stacy Cox, TCHTA Executive said.

New Infant School Opens in Negril Jamaica

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, December 8, 2017 – Montego Bay – The new state-of-the-art West End Infant School, in Negril, Westmoreland, was officially opened on Wednesday, December 6.   The facility, which commenced classes in September, is the result of a public-private partnership among the Sandals Foundation, the CHASE Fund and the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information.  The school has the capacity to accommodate 160 students, with 60 students on roll so far.It was built at a cost of just over $111 million with funding from the Sandals Foundation and the CHASE Fund, and comprises eight classrooms with accompanying resource rooms and bathroom facilities, a large kitchen and dining room/recreational area, a staffroom, sickbay and principal’s office.   The property also has a garden and playground. All the furniture and educational resources were donated by School Specialty, a United States-based company that supplies school equipment.In his address at the ceremony, Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, said he is extremely proud that the school has already met 98 per cent of the required standards set by the Early Childhood Commission (ECC), and within a month, following additional requisite teacher-training sessions, will reach the 100 per cent mark.He also expressed gratitude to the two donor agencies for working with the Ministry to establish the school, which he said is crucial to national development.   He called for the provision of further support to other Ministry initiatives, such as the nutrition and school-bus programme, which he said will greatly impact human development in the western end of the island.Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer of the CHASE Fund, William ‘Billy’ Heaven, said his organisation, which has been a key supporter of the early-childhood-education sector for the past 15 years, provided $48 million towards the construction of the school.   He emphasised that early-childhood development continues to be of critical importance to the Fund, and that returns of investment in the sector can be as high as $17 for every $1 invested.“We at CHASE understand and we underscore the value of early-childhood education not only to the individual but also to the society.   Even more critical, we understand that this is the stage that determines what adult this child will become, and there is great need to maximise the future well-being of each and every child who attends this institution,” Mr. Heaven said.Release: JIS Related Items:last_img read more
