FCBS wants a review of funds in college’s name change

The Frederick County Board of Supervisors (FCBS) have tabled approval of the funding for Laurel Ridge Community College until further review.

A County Supervisor is questioning how much of Frederick County’s funds were used in Laurel Ridge Community College’s name change last year.

Laurel Ridge Community College’s Vice President of Financial Administrative Services Greg Short attended the Oct. 26 meeting.

Short did offer a complete breakdown of the school’s budget for the board to review at a future work session.

The budget came under scrutiny when Supervisor Shawn Graber questioned exactly where $9,000 of what was called the school’s President’s Fund came from.

Short was not sure what Graber was referring to by the “president’s fund” but he did assure the board that no Frederick County funds were used in the name change.

Last year the school asked for a budget of $81,308 from Frederick County.

Laurel Ridge Community College is asking for just over $92,000 from the county for 2023.

The complete video of the Frederick County Board of Supervisor’s Oct. 26 meeting is found here with the budget issue approximately 42 minutes in.
