The objective of the reserve policy is to provide adequate resources for cash flow and contingency purposes and to help ensure stable tax rates.

It is the policy objective of the College to maintain a minimum General Fund reserve balance throughout the year of 25% of the General Fund budget, to be used for cash flow purposes and to mitigate risks such as revenue shortfalls or unanticipated expenditures. The funds will be used to avoid cash flow interruptions, generate interest income, and avoid the need for short-term borrowing.

A balance larger than this minimum policy calculation amount may be maintained periodically.

If the College’s General Fund reserve falls below the minimum policy calculation, the President or his/her designee will submit a recommended plan to the Board of Trustees to rebuild the reserve to the minimum level.
