SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The University of Utah spends more than 100-thousand dollars a year to maintain the campus house where U. President Michael Young lives. That's a third of Young's salary.
The university says the 70-year-old Rosenblatt Home requires constant maintenance. The heating bill alone, for five furnaces, runs more than 10-thousand dollars a winter.
Utah's nine state colleges and universities provide housing for their presidents.
But College of Eastern Utah President Ryan Thomas pays for his own maintenance. His kids mow the lawn. Chalk that up to a lack of funding for the small Price, Utah, college.
Today the State Board of Regents will review these costs -- which were detailed in a new report.
