The announcement from College President Neil Nuttall came during a board of trustees
meeting yesterday. Doctor Nuttall told the trustees he learned just prior to the meeting that the colleges' insurance carrier has agreed to pay 100 percent of the replacement roof costs. Two separate incidents have involved storms inflicting damages to the roofs – in December 2012 and the most recent being hail this past May.

Doctor Nuttall described the roof damage as significant--over half a million dollars. Vice President Jamie Hooyman said the third floor of Geyer Hall is not being used due to numerous leaks. Doctor Nuttall spoke of leaks and issues affecting roofs of Ketcham community center, Cross Hall, and the Layson building. A decision is to be made regarding the type of roofing membrane. If the choice is to upgrade the type of membrane, (currently a TPO thermoplastic material) the college will be responsible for
paying costs above what insurance covers on the claim.

In an effort to expedite the roof projects before winter, Doctor Nuttall said two weeks will be allowed to receive bids and options. A recommendation will be presented to trustees, perhaps at a special meeting.

Regarding personnel, Jason Ralls submitted his resignation as senior data base administrator until his replacement is trained or December 31st. Dr. Nuttall anticipates
Ralls will do contracted work for North Central on a part-time basis.

Hired as the TRIO program academic advisor was Tocarra Williams of Trenton.

Two Green Hills Head Start employments were approved. Tracy Simpson will manage the health and dental component while 21-year long employee Connie Andersontransfers from teacher to nutrition specialist.

After a public hearing with no comments, Trustees re-set the tax levy at 40 cents on the 100 dollars of assessed valuation. It's expected to generate over 342 thousand dollars in tax revenue. Noting assessed valuation for the college district has dropped from a year ago, Doctor Nuttall expressed concerns with those asking the state tax commission for exemptions or lowering of property valuations. He stated he recently learned of requests filed by Buckeye Pipeline and Bluebird Media Network. The WrightMemorial Physicians building received an exemption on one of its tax appeals.

A board policy change was approved regarding a flexible leave day for full time staff. And the first reading was held on a revision to state immediate family of NCMC employees can have Ketcham center memberships at a reduced rate (now $10 a month)

Eight residence hall assistants were introduced including the new Student Senate President, Sara Miles, of Leonard in Shelby County. It was the first meeting for the new dean of instruction, Doctor Sharon Weiser (WEE-zer) from Marshall who began August 1st.

Doctor Jamie Hooyman told trustees she's optimistic North Centrals' enrollment will remain steady although numbers are not yet final. Tyson Otto noted the bookstore since August 1st, had
over 505 thousand dollars in fall semester sales from over 22 hundred transactions.

Teresa Cross reported more than 100-thousand dollars will be disbursed for scholarships this
year. She said the gifts in action campaign climbed above the goal, set 18 months ago by the
Foundation, of having two million dollars in endowment funds; adding three million is next.
