However, the board requested an increase in the Student Health Fee to “address increased costs pertaining to salaries, benefits and medical supplies.”

The increase would be $27.07 from $219.00 in fiscal year 2021 to $246.07 in fiscal year 2022.

The board also approved the two action items to repurpose the Recreation Debt Fee to pay for phases I and II of the Recreation Fields and Facilities project.
