CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - University of Wyoming trustees have established employee compensation, retention and an improved financial accounting system as the top priorities for the 2017-2018 budget draft.

The proposed budget will total about $156 million.

The UW Board of Trustees this past week analyzed and discussed several priority items, most with an estimated funding amount.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (https://bit.ly/1IaT9MX ) that much of the discussion circled around how receptive the Wyoming Legislature and the Governor’s office would be to individual line items.

Trustee John McKinley says employee compensation for both staff and faculty through salary and benefit increases is currently the No. 1 priority.

The draft budget is scheduled for further discussion and possible amendments during an Aug. 5 UW trustees conference call.
