SIU to Discuss Payroll Issues
By Angela Hatton
Carbondale, IL – Officials at Southern Illinois University will discuss how they plan to pay their employees January 1 at tomorrow's board of trustees meeting. The university system has struggled to find the sixteen and a half million dollars needed to pay faculty and staff after the state fell behind in their allocations to the school. Illinois owes SIU 110-million-dollars for its fiscal year 2010 budget. SIU President Glenn Poshard says the university has enacted cost-saving measures at its Edwardsville and Carbondale campuses. Poshard tells the Southern newspaper he's confident they'll have the cash to meet the January 1 payroll schedule.
