College has so much primary property tax revenue that it can spend it on frivolous projects like this—beautiful but unjustified and unnecessary—the revenue could be better spent on educational programs
Construction of the amphitheater on the Prescott Campus is moving ahead as scheduled. Photos supplied to the District Governing Board in its October agenda show the progress being made.
One has to question the wisdom of using County primary tax revenue for this project, which is nice but unnecessary. It is the result of the College having so much excess property tax revenue each year, it can spend it on projects like this without providing citizens any justification. Moreover, there is never a priority assessment made by the Governing Board that weighs unnecessary projects like this against other potential educational projects throughout the County. Consequently, the Administration builds whatever it fancies with no accountability to anyone.
