Butler County Community College will decide in a month or so whether to look at a merger proposal from the community college in neighboring Beaver County, the president of the Butler school said Thursday.

The board of the Community College of Beaver County voted recently to have President Joe Forrester talk to the Butler college's board of trustees about merger, said BCCC President Nicholas Neupauer.

Neupauer added that the Beaver board is “investigating a lot of different options to continue down the path of longevity, sustainability and success.”

Neupauer said his board's first decision would be to determine whether it would be interested in exploring a merger.

Forrester and several CCBC board members could not be reached Thursday.
