Daily Republic Opinion: Fairfield and Suisun City arts wither, but all not lost

Arts programs are taking a beating in Fairfield and Suisun City.

The Solano Community College governing board gave a tentative nod this week to its 2012-13 budget, which includes $573,000 in red ink even after ending summer school, suspending football and water polo, slicing benefits, cutting more than 25 jobs and cutting ties with the Solano College Theatre Association.

A public hearing and official adoption of the budget is scheduled Sept. 5.

As part of the budget, the board voted 6-1 to end the college district’s $750,000-a-year contract with the theater association, which manages the campus theater and the Harbor Theatre in Suisun City and supports other production companies in staging performances.
