Completing a process underway since June, auditors gave the College of Lake County's Fiscal Year 2016 financial statements an unmodified ("clean") opinion. Representatives from RMS LLP US reported on the audit at the Sept. 27 CLC Board of Trustees' meeting. The audit included a review of basic financial statements, grants from the Illinois Community College Board, internal controls, credit hour reporting and the CLC Foundation as well as the clarity and transparency of financial records.
"Being financially accountable and transparent in our practices is a top priority for the Board of Trustees," said Board Chair Dr. William M. Griffin. "We are very pleased to again receive a clean audit."The board approved the audit report and authorized the college to file it with the Illinois Community College Board and appropriate federal agencies.
Human resourcesThe trustees approved a three-year contract between the college and the Illinois Fraternal Order of Police Labor Council. The contract covers 21 full-time CLC Police employees, including 13 sworn police officers. It provides a new starting pay rate that aligns with other community colleges.
