A quick look at news from around the tri-state region.
Southeastern Community College can proceed with a temporary expansion of its Keokuk campus.
The faculty at Southeastern Community College is seeking a pay increase and several language changes in its next contract.
The initial offer from the SCC Higher Education Association for the 2013/2014 school year calls for a 6.85% increase in salaries and benefits.
The increase would be calculated after state money set aside for improving teacher salaries is added to current salaries and benefits.
The HEA also wants education levels to be considered during lay-off recalls and the option to carry over unused leave time or be reimbursed for it.
SCC is putting some permanent construction in Lee County on hold for the time being.
