BUTLER TWP — Butler County Community College president Nick Neupauer announced at Wednesday’s meeting of the council of trustees the school that morning received $1.5 million from the department of education to build the Victor K. Phillips Nursing and Allied Health Building.
This brings the total amount raised for the project to $17.3 million — $10.7 million from state sources and about $6.5 million from private sources.
The cost of the Victor K. Phillips Nursing and Allied Health Building is estimated at $14 million, so the college can use the excess money for other expenses related to the facility, Neupauer said.
“That money helps us pay the bills on that building,” Neupauer said. “That’s less college budget money we’ll have to spend.”
The Victor K. Phillips Nursing and Allied Health Building is part of a $21 million south campus construction project that began in June 2020. The facility is on schedule to be completed in 2023.
