The chairman of the Highlands University Board of Regents says he wants the board to be more involved in the planning for the annual budget.
The board last week approved the annual budget, just ahead of a deadline to turn in a preliminary document to the state government.
The budget is $95 million, which Highlands finance officials considered relatively flat, given inflation. The core of the budget, in which the regents have more control, is $38 million. Much of the rest involves restricted funds, where expenditures are mandated for particular purposes.
