Last week I wrote a story about the county disqualifying two local nonprofits from its financial applications process – the Beck Center and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
By the way I not going to say “I reported it first” - which I did - because that sounds like something TV would do. And we all know that TV sucks. I mean that it's bad for you
But I digress.
Soooo, you can click right smack here for the only coverage of two nonprofits blowing it.
In the meantime, some folks and some county commissioners have wondered just how series the mayor is about not funding the two groups.
I can tell you that it's no joke. He said this morning that he's not even considering it. Everyone who wanted money had the chance to apply.
But, he said, the County Commission, which really controls the purse strings but never really flexes its muscle, could help the organizations on its own.
Based on last year's actions, however, I don't see it. There was a lot of noise but in the end, the board passed the current budget exactly as the mayor proposed it. Except that they reinstated their travel allowances.
