Less money for construction projects has led Colorado State University to cut 10 positions in the facilities management department at the Fort Collins campus.
The 10 positions include architects, project managers and designers. It's unclear how many of the jobs are currently filled. The facilities department has already eliminated 25 vacant positions. Colorado State President Tony Frank has ordered departments to make cuts because of less revenue.
University officials say construction of several new residence halls, athletics and recreation facilities and a parking garage during a recent building boom has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into the local economy.
