PHOENIX (AP) — Maricopa Community Colleges have set a public hearing for Tuesday, May 26, to consider a budget that contains no property tax or tuition increases.

The Legislature eliminated nearly $15 million in funding to Maricopa and Pima county colleges in March. College officials say it was a final blow in a series of cuts to community college funding over the last several years.

They say additional revenues from new construction and the deferred implementation of certain school programs should offset the need for increases.

Maricopa County Colleges proposed a $1.49 billion budget that reflects a nearly $9 million loss in funding as a result of the cuts.

The seven-member board is set to meet at the Maricopa Community Colleges District Offices to approve a budget for the year beginning July 1.
