A public hearing has been scheduled for February 21st for Northeast Iowa Community College's 2012 fiscal year budget--which calls for $30,926,434 in spending. That represents a 2.57 percent increase over this year's spending.

Director of Accounting Services Tom Ridout says about 25 percent of NICC's operating funds comes from state general aid, six percent comes from local taxpayers and about 58 percent comes from student tuition.

"We are committed to keeping tuition as low as we can for students but it is very dependent on what occurs at the state level," stated NICC President Penny Wills.
