Coconino Community College Seeks Override with Chamber Support

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - Coconino Community College will host a series of informational Open Houses throughout Coconino County, designed to answer questions about the College's finances and upcoming override initiative on the Nov. 5 election ballot.

"The Open House is an opportunity for community members to learn more about the College's finances and how we are proposing resolving projected budget shortfall of the near future," said CCC President Dr. Leah L. Bornstein.

The community wide Open Houses are scheduled from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Tuba City, Flagstaff, Page and Williams.

The CCC Open House presentations are formatted to provide information to the public on the College's financial situation, not to advocate for a property tax increase.
