Trustee Huff raised the question as to whether or not the Board had authorized the request of MSU-O for an addition to the heating plant, including a building addition, boiler and auxiliary equipment costing $225,000.

Vice President May stated he was sure this request was authorized by the Board under the category "remodeling and additions," when the University's Capital Outlay request was made to the Department of Administration in October of 1960. This request does appear on page 13 of the Department of Administration Capital Outlay Budget Detail for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1962 under the classification "remodeling and additions."

On Motion by Mr. Huff, seconded by Mr. Harlan, it was unanimously voted to accept the action of the Legislature in appropriating to MSU-O $225,000 for this project.

On motion by Dr. Smith, seconded by Mr. Merriman, the following action was unanimously voted:

It is necessary to make it possible for Michigan State University-Oakland to take a freshman class, to heat and maintain the buildings now under construction, and to carry forward with present commitments. It is proposed that $100,000 of the $205,000 additional money granted by the legislature to Michigan State University in total for all of its operations be allocated to MSU-O. The requirements for operation of MSU-O on the basis of two terms of the proposed trimester program will be authorized on a deficit basis with the understanding that a request will be made to the Michigan legislature for the balance of funds required in excess of the $100,000 allocated from new funds, and the next session of the legislature can determine the availability of the third trimester for the 1961-62 academic year.
