  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]

    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

University looks to reduce campus vehicles, save $125,000

The University is planning to reduce the number of vehicles on campus to 150, with the ultimate goal of 100.

The University has 174 campus vehicles that are used by various departments like Parking and Safety Services, Campus Operations, Dining Services and Information Technology Services (ITS).

The goal is to reduce the vehicles to 150 by the end of fiscal year 2014. This is a projected savings of $125,000 a year, according to an article posted on Feb. 7.

Eventually the University hopes to reduce that number to 100 vehicles.

The reduction in vehicles will come as a cost-saving measure that will save money for the University in coming years.

Andrew Grant, director of business operations for the University, said the costs to own and operate vehicles on campus are the reasons for the reduction.

“We are looking to reduce the number of non-essential non-emergency vehicles on campus,” Grant said.

While it hasn’t been determined what will happen to the vehicles the University decides to get rid of, Grant said he would know more in the next three to four weeks.
