CHENEY — It’s unlikely in recent years that the public comment portion of an Eastern Washington University Board of Trustees meeting has drawn the interest it did last Friday afternoon, Feb. 28 at Tawanka Commons.
However, on the heels the previous day’s presentation from associate professor of physics David Syphers, who was offering a report to the university’s governing body on athletic spending, what others had to say proved of interest.
Eastern is facing approximately $3.5 million in budget cuts out of board-approved spending of $293 million in 2020, about 1.2 percent.
