In this two part Talk of the Town, we discuss the impending budget cuts at Garden City Community College.

In part one, we talk with GCCC President Carol Ballantyne and trustee Della Brandenburger about what areas are being cut.

President Ballantyne lays out two budget scenarios and the proposed cuts for each outcome. She also discusses what non-personnel cuts have been made in past years, and what the process was for deciding what programs would be cut for next year’s budget.

In part two, we talk with strings instructor Doug Beyer, who is one of five faculty members whose contracts will not be renewed next school year.

Beyer shares his thoughts on the cuts from a faculty member’s perspective and also discusses the importance of the arts in a community.
