Timothy Galaz / Arizona Daily Wildcat Kris T. Kreutz, Director of Administrative Services, and Juliette Moore, Director of Student Recreation and Health Services, bring major budget issues in opening the Student recreation Center Extension to the GPSC.

Representatives from Campus Health Service proposed a new student fee of an unknown amount to help fund the addition to the Campus Recreation Center at Wednesday’s Graduate and Professional Student Council meeting.

An addition to the Rec Center was approved by the vast majority of students in 2005, however due to a current lack of state funding, administrators are struggling to come up with the funds to pay for various operational costs.

Kris Kreutz, director of administrative services for campus health, said an amount for the proposed fee has not been disclosed because the department does not know specifically how much money will be needed.

Due to state budget cuts, funding is needed to support a myriad of operational costs and positions for Campus Health and the expansion to the Rec Center, said Kreutz. 

Student employment, equipment costs, several healthcare positions as well as custodial and maintenance expenses were all issues that Kreutz and Campus Recreation director Juliette Moore discussed as being in need of future funding.

“”We were relying on state funding to cover those costs and now it’s non-existent,”” said Moore.

Campus Health is currently in the process of scheduling meetings with various student groups to establish a student fee review committee in order to get student input.
