Alan Spector/tn.gov Friday June 24, 2016

Tennessee residents are urged to use caution when hiring movers through websites like Craigslist. That warning from the state Department of Commerce and Insurance's Division of Consumer Affairs. Last month, there was a report of a Craigslist moving scam that left a Georgia resident robbed of $75,000 dollars worth of her family’s personal and household valuables. The victim hired the “two-man moving team” through Craigslist. The movers agreed to load up the family’s belongings and follow them to the new location. Instead, the movers loaded a U-Haul vehicle, which was later discovered to be stolen, and drove off, stealing the vehicle’s contents. You can find tips to avoid situations like that online at TN.gov.

 


UT Board of Trustees approves 2.2 percent tuition increase
WVLT Friday June 24, 2016

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The University of Tennessee Board of Trustees voted to approve the fiscal year 2016-17 budget.

That means tuition will increase by 2.2 percent; which is the lowest it's increased in more than 30 years. This is the second consecutive year the university increased its tuition. The majority of fees will not increase.

This is part of University of Tennessee President Joe DiPietro's plan to achieve financial sustainability throughout the entire UT system. Efforts include voluntary retirement incentives, eliminating low-priority programs, achieving administrative efficiencies, finding alternative revenue sources and implementing innovative student recruitment programs. Unanticipated state funding increases in 2015 and 2016 also helped keep the tuition increase low.

In the $2.2 billion dollar budget for the fiscal year 2017, $32.1 million was set aside for a salary increase pool. It will be distributed across UT campuses and institutes. Each campus or institute will decide how to distribute the funds.
