Staff recommends execution of the agreement for fiscal year 2009-10 civil grant funding with Leesburg High School Project Graduation.
During the budget process it was determined that civic funding for the FY 09/10 budget would be offered only to those organizations that received funding in FY 08/09. The funding amount was determined by reducing last year’s award by 10%. A letter was sent to each organization in April 2009 advising them of the funding amount offered with a request to either accept or decline the proposal. Leesburg High School Project Graduation accepted the offered amount.
1. Approve the execution of the agreement between the City of Leesburg and Leesburg High School Project Graduation.
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
A total of $170,758.00 has been included in the approved fiscal year 2009-10 budget in account number 042-2021-532-4911 for this purpose.
