City Council Scales Down Funding to Creston:Arts

At the regular meeting of the Creston city council Tuesday, the general consensus was a $5000 fund to Creston:Arts from the Hotel/Motel Fund. Originally, the request was $11,925. Council member Loudon made a motion to accept that request, while council member Wilson suggested a lower amount.

White seconded Wilson's lesser amount, and with a vote of 6-1, Creston:Arts received $5000 for their budget in fiscal year 2014-2015. Wilson believed they should attempt fundraisers, and try to raise funds retroactively. If they would be unsuccessful with that, Wilson said a larger amount than $5000 would be a possibility.
