LBCC Slashes $10.4 Million from Budget
Budget reduced without layoffs or cuts to educational programs

Long Beach City College dramatically reduced its preliminary 2017-2018 $10.7 million budget deficit to $300,000 without layoffs or cuts to programs.

The deficit was reduced through cuts in expenses and an aggressive enrollment push. In addition, a number of employees accepted the Supplemental Employee Retirement Plan (SERP) that the College offered last June which allowed strategic reorganization of staff.
