To find our energy requirements we used the University’s press release stating that 90% of the library departments expenditures were staffing or collections (journal subscriptions, etc.), although this figure may include expenses other than utilities possibly that might not be affected by extended hours we felt that again we were safer using a high estimate to ensure that our proposal would have sufficient funding. In total these costs amount to $99,605 which is less than the $110,000 that was quoted by the University, however we were unable to discern from the press release whether or not the higher figure included journal subscriptions that were cancelled. Regardless the funds raised from an $3 increase in privilege fee per semester would result in a total of $132,000 annually, assuming a 22,000 student enrollment per semester. This would create a surplus of at least $22,000 that could be used to cover unforeseen expenses such as overtime for existing custodians or security guards.
