Sylvania city council to consider groups’ funding requests

5 community organizations asking for money


Sylvania City Council is to meet at 7:30 p.m. today in council chambers at 6635 Maplewood Ave. to discuss community funding requests and other issues.

Last week, council’s employee and community relations committee was told to find creative ways to tackle budgetary restrictions in the face of funding requests.

Five community organizations are requesting money from the city’s community programs fund. They are the Sylvania Community Improvement Corporation, the Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce, the Sylvania Arts Commission, Sylvania Community Action Team, and Sylvania Area Family Services.

This year, council received fund requests totaling $91,250, but it had budgeted for $76,000.
