Community Colleges: JCCC tuition to increase for out-of-county students Johnson County Community College trustees have agreed to a proposed 2003 spending plan that would increase tuition at the school for out-of-county students by $13 per credit hour next year. At a budget workshop Thursday, trustees agreed to a $89.5 million budget plan that also would raise the college’s property-tax rate on homes in Johnson County by 22 percent. The trustees said cuts in state spending and increases in student enrollment made the tax increase necessary. Under the proposed budget, students who live in Johnson County would pay $58 per credit hour an $8 increase. Those who live in other Kansas counties or out of state would pay $13 more per credit hour. _____________________________________ Douglas County: ECO2 meetings set Five meetings are scheduled to accept public input on plans for boosting sales taxes to finance development of industrial parks and preserve open space in Douglas County.
