A press release from State Senator Don DeWitte:
Elgin Community College, McHenry County College to receive money for repairs
Springfield, IL… Millions of dollars in capital funding have been released by the Illinois Office of Management and Budget to community colleges across the state.
State Senator Donald P. DeWitte (R-St. Charles) says two local colleges, Elgin Community College and McHenry County College, will receive thousands from the Fiscal Year 2019 capital budget.
“The money these colleges will receive was included in this year’s budget and is critical in order for them to move forward with much-needed repairs and updates,” said DeWitte.
“Our community colleges provide a great educational path for many students in our area, making it extremely important that we invest dollars toward their improvement needs.”
Elgin Community College will receive $435,725 and McHenry County College will receive $153,130 in state funding. In addition, both colleges will receive local funds bringing their totals to $1,000,000 and $800,000 respectively.
DeWitte says the funds received by Elgin Community College will go toward the purchase of a new chiller for Building B, and funds received by McHenry County College will go toward repairing roof top units, installing new installation, and replacing duct work.
