When the board initially tried to remedy the ongoing debt and deficits with the athletics budget, it agreed to provide $25,000 a year from the General Fund to help offset costs. Mobley said this was discontinued when former Gov. Chet Culver instituted a 10 percent across-the-board budget cut during his term.
The board accepted the athletics financial summary. It will continue to look for ways to keep the budget even and out of the red.
