SGA passes budget

by the Flor-Ala Staff

The UNA SGA passed its budget last week for the 2011-2012 budget year during its weekly meeting.

SGA President Ralph Akalonu suggested to senators and other members of the executive council earlier in the year to hold off on passing the budget for upcoming renovations. The renovations Akalonu was hoping to budget for are set to be done to the SGA’s new offices in the GUC.

Money was set aside in the budget, totaling approximately $7,000 and are expected to pay for HVAC units, upgrades and other needed improvements to the new offices that SGA plans to move into.

Dollars were taken from various items in the budget in order to pay for the renovations.

Now that SGA has passed this budget, the organization can move forward with the renovations.
