Addressing a $2.26-million shortfall in Okanagan College's budget for the coming year will result in staff cuts, modest student fee increases, and belt-tightening across the $92.5-million operation. On Tuesday, the college's board of governors passed the 2012-13 budget, which will see up to 16 positions being cut.
