Part of Minutes of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees

9 Dr. Angelucci indicated his disappointment with Phase I of the study and Mr. Ezelle requested that the Hospital Committee give consideration to the low wages of Hospital employees. He pointed out that room and board rates were high but the hourly rate of pay for hospital employees was probably in the neighborhood of $2. 19 an hour. Dr. Angelucci replied that a recent study of local hospitals showed that 73 of every dollar went for salaries with the other 27' going for food. supplies, etc. (See PR 12 at the end of the Minutes. ) S. Amendment to Room and Board Rates (PR 13) Mr. Kerley stated that the proposed amendment to the room and board rates would not change the rate of $850. 00 approved on December 13, 1966 but would permit a certain flexibility by giving an optional plan for room and board consisting of breakfast and dinner only. On motion by Mr. Hillenmeyer, seconded by Dr. Murray, and approved, the Board action of December 13, 1966 adjusting the room and board rates for under- graduate housing to $850. 00 per year was amended to add an optional room and board plan consisting of breakfast and dinner only for students living in University residence halls at a rate of $735. 00 per year. (See PR 13 at the end of the Minutes. T. Energy Sources for Lexington Campus (PR 14) Mr. Kerley indicated that the University has recently been engaged in an ex- haustive fuel energy systems study to determine the best and most economical means of providing heating capacity sufficient to serve the institution's expanding physical facilities. At this time, there is insufficient information available upon which to properly evaluate all alternate systems for long range use. At the January 20, 1967, meeting of the Board of Trustees, a Resolution relating to construction financing was adopted. As a part of that Resolution, Item 6 of Schedule I provided for a high temperature water plant. Becausie of the inability to obtain the information necessary to properly evaluate alternate energy systems and reach a final decision with respect to the University's long-range heating requirements, it is recommended that this section of the Resolution be deleted and that an additional project be added to Schedule II of the Resolution which would provide for the addition of auxiliary equip- ment to the existing heating plant and reconstruction of the existing distribution system to improve the efficiency of the existing plants and increase their capacity. Mr. Kerley continued that it was proposed to use electrical energy in the classroom- office building which would reduce the load on the present heating facilities and at the same time provide information on the cost of the use of electrical energy for heating purposes. Mr. Milner commented that in his opinion electrical energy would prove more costly than other fuel energy systems but felt it was a worthwhile experiment and made the motion that the recommendation set forth in PR 14 be approved. His motion was seconded by Mr. Hillenmeyer and approved. (See PR 14 at the end of the Minutes.)
