Members of the East Central College board of trustees authorized college officials to execute leases for four off-campus locations for the coming year. The action came at the board’s June 18 meeting.
The amount paid to lease the Southwest Area Center in Sullivan will remain unchanged. The annual rate paid to Central Markets for the 5,800-square-foot facility will total $20,028 for the new fiscal year.
The lease for space at Four Rivers Career Center in Washington remains unchanged for the coming year with the college paying $75,000 to the Washington School District. The agreement with the Rolla School District for 8,140 square feet of space at Rolla Technical Center increases to $145,530.
The increase is due to ECC’s full-time use of a room that had been shared with the school district in the past.
The lease agreement with Phelps County Regional Medical Center for the facility on Bridge School Road that houses the nursing programs in Rolla remains the same for the new fiscal year.
The college began leasing the 3,000-square-foot facility in 2007 and will continue to pay $37,120 per year.
Trustees also approved the renewal of two professional service agreements effective July 1. Legal services will again be provided by Tueth, Keeney, Cooper, Mohan & Jackstadt, P.C. of St. Louis.
Security services will again be handled by Securitas of St. Louis. The rate of $13.93 per hour remains unchanged from the 2012 fiscal year.
Due to the scheduling of upcoming board meetings, trustees also pre-authorized purchases that will need to be made with funds from state vocational enhancement grants, Missouri Health Wins and the Graduate! St. Louis grant prior to the start of the fall semester Aug. 15.
