Finger Lakes Community College received $1.9 million in taxpayer money last year from residents in Monroe County.
This was because taxpayers pay charge backs when students go to a community college in other counties.
Monroe County paid $49 million in charge backs last year for other counties, and $30 million in their own.
The public is asking for the practices of charge backs to end.
