Murray gets a $30k raise. Others get big raises. Take a percentage and the fireworks are paid for. Instead they spin it as saving money and saving jobs from layoffs.
Dr. Anne Marie Murray is paid $153,000 and the head of academics Mike Oriolo pockets $120,000.

You can look it up at seethroughny.net .

Maybe one of the them could afford to throw a little community Fourth of July party in their backyard.

Ironically, Murray got a fat raise shortly after being hired but yet the college can't afford a 4th of July show?

I'm not sure why "taxpayer" is in parentheses behind the word college in your post. They do not pay taxes on any of there properties (including the president's house) just HARC and the rest of the non-profits around here. That's why only 45%of the properties pay taxes for 100% of the village.
The college is funded in part by the Herkimer County Taxpayer. I believe the taxpayer pays the college around one or two million dollars a year. BTW, the college is expecting a $750,000 shortfall due to the Govenor's budget.It's prudent to cut the fireworks. This has nothing to do about salaries. Dr.Murray has a Doctorate. Isn't this what we teach our kids to get an education to make more money. She is worth it, just talk to her and you will see. Furthermore, The village didn't bitch when they gave their fire and police a 17 % pay raise last year. Amazing, no one complained.Who signs these contracts? The village idiots thats who.

The College budget is approved by the County legislature, you are correct on that. But the President's salary is not part of that budget. The College board decides on her salary.

BTW, the shortfall does not happen until the upcoming fiscal year. They are expecting a shortfall well before the State budget has even been crafted, let alone voted on.

Well, looking back at this thread and others, it's apparent that you incite much of the problems. Going to great lengths to post under the name of your "target" shows how juvenille you are. To proke others then to turn around telling them to be nice is not going to work. Perhaps it is you who needs to be nice?

HCCC stands for Herkimer County Corruption Center. Dr. Annie has to earn her big bucks by hiring all the cousins and hacks for jobs they are not remotely qualified to hold. Gov. Andy ought to close all the Community Colleges and start over from scratch. Let the regents do all the hiring, not the political hacks.

Unfortunate but true. The second "C" is supposed to stand for COMMUNITY yet they continually withdraw farther from the community. Under Williams they backed out of the bi-centennial, now with Murray the 4th of July. Next, they'll build a wall around the place and make it its own commune.

Truth is Annie makes $160000 plus housing and perks.
Truth is that most high school superintendents in the area make more. Truth is that The county is supposed to pay 1/3 of the cost of the college. They pay about 8%. What would happen if the county actually paid their fair share? The truth is that the college is paying for new stadium lights and cant afford your fireworks.

Get a clue people

Idiot, high schools don't have superintendents. They have principals. School districts have superintendents.

And wrong, they do not earn more than Dr. Anne Marie Murray, Ph.D.

Ilion's superintendent makes $150,000.

Mohawk $136,000.

Herkimer $131,000.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Know-it-all

A know-it-all or know-all is a person who believes that he/she has an accurate comprehension of a topic and/or situation when in reality, his/her comprehension is inaccurate and limited. This belief may or may not be outwardly expressed

Know-it-alls would be plural. Guess you missed that lesson in third grade?
