Trustees clear path for state funding of HHS building

Sept. 14, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- Acting at their regular meeting Friday, Sept. 12, members of the Western Michigan University Board of Trustees approved several procedural items that open the door for state funding for the construction of the University's College of Health and Human Services facility.

Already under construction, the facility will be funded in part by Michigan's State Building Authority. The SBA recently informed WMU officials that it plans to include the project in an upcoming funding program. However, before funds can be released, the University must spend down its portion of the project costs, as well as approve and execute a number of documents.

Trustees voted to adopt the resolution required by the SBA, which authorized the construction and completion assurance agreement, conveyances of property, a lease, and easement agreement, if necessary. They also passed an addendum that authorizes University officials to make clarifications or amendments to the resolution as deemed necessary.
