​I've received the following from a colleague at another school. 

The powers that be want to save money by shutting down the hoods in our building. That doesn’t seem like a good idea to me and I have asked others and they agree, but no one can tell me why we shouldn’t shut them down. Do you have any insights on this? Should I be concerned if all the hoods get shut down? If so, why?​

I agree with the department, not the PTB, but would like more feedback
