Bill #49-59

A Resolution to give Inflationary Increase in Student Fee Amount for Jesse Auditorium for Fiscal Year 2011

Whereas, Jesse Auditorium has provided the necessary technology to host performers and speakers since 1895, and

Whereas, Jesse Auditorium is currently used for over 200 events per year, including those scheduled by any interested student organization, and

Whereas, The fee allocation is used to enhance the technology in the auditorium and to fund maintenance/repair and student labor expenses, and

Whereas, Alternative sources of funding are being sought to renovate facilities and replace auditorium seating, and

Whereas, Jesse Auditorium is requesting no change to the current fee as to not create an excel burden on the students, and

WHEREAS, Jesse Auditorium Manager John Murray projected no necessary increase in funds needed excepted for that created by inflation,

Therefore, the Student Fee Review Committee recommends that Jesse Auditorium receives an inflationary increase not below 0% but no higher than the percentage change in the Consumer Price Index as defined by the Missouri higher Education Student Funding Act of 2007.

Respectfully Submitted,

Marcus Sauer, Student Fee Review Committee
