At the Oct. 23 Paonia budget work session, the council discussed who and how much various organizations should receive in 2013.
The Town of Paonia separates those donations into three categories — human resources/donations, dues and subscriptions and cultural events.
Under cultural events the trustees are looking at giving $1,000 to the Mountain Harvest Festival, which is the same amount they gave last year. Pickin' Productions has not submitted a request for its summer concert series. In 2012 the town donated $600 to Pickin' in the Park.
The town is looking at donating $3,300 to the Paonia Senior Center, $500 to Grad Night, $750 to the Delta County Housing Authority, $400 to North Fork Bull Riding, $2,000 to North Fork Vision 2020, $500 to Slow Food Western Slope, $500 to Hospice, $250 to Medical Systems and $200 to Dolphin House. All of those donations are the same amounts that were approved in 2012.
Other donations being considered are $100 for KVNF and $250 for The Center for Mental Health, which had requested $500.
Dues and subscriptions requested are $250 for Delta County Economic Development, $2,590 for All Points Transit, $1,693 for Region 10, $974 for the Colorado Municipal League, $140 for the Colorado Municipal Clerks Association, $60 for Colorado Tree Coalition, $82.31 for Norton Antivirus, $75 for the Pan American Homeowners Association, $15 for the Arbor Day Foundation, $125 for the International Code Council membership and $100 for FORE Alliance.
If the council approves those amounts in the final 2013 budget, they will total $15,854.31.blog comments powered by Disqus
