ResponseCouncilor Woodson, we currently have around $70,000 left in our budget for use toward programming. Monies are available and if they applied it would go through the process of Board approval and then Council approval. I met today with Mr. Burch and Rev. Phillips to discuss their current situation. They are in the process of trying to get an extension for the deadline with their main office.
