Salaries were the major item of business when the Mid-Plains Community College board of governors met.

Purdywas hired in June 2012. He was a veteran college business manager with no master’s degree. He was paid a base salary of $155,000 and total compensation package of $208,792, a 10.3 percent reduction from the previous college president's contract.

Also, the board agreed Wednesday that full-time salaried administrative positions not covered by a union contract will receive a 2.8454 percent increase for 2014-15. Permanent part-time administrative employees will also see a 2.8454 percent increase, and permanent part-time classified staff will see a 3.25 percent hike.

Adjunct faculty salaries will increase by $25, to $700 per credit hour.

The board also agreed to commit up to $200,000 for improvements to the Valentine extended campus, contingent of approval by voters of a city sales tax to support the project.

In other business, board member David Lynch has submitted his resignation from the board of governors for personal reasons, and applications will be accepted for an appointment to replace him.

Applicants must submit a personal resume to President Ryan Purdy, 601 W. State Farm Rd. North Platte, NE 69101 by June 15, 2014.

The only requirement is that they permanently reside in one of the district 2 counties including: Arthur, Keith, Perkins, Chase or Dundy counties.

The board conducted a closed session concerning real estate and took no action.

The board will meet next at the Ogallala Extended Campus at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 25.
