Council allocates annual grants, donations

Posted May 6, 2014

New Tecumseth councillors approved $147,500 in dispersements for annual grants and donations covering three categories: General ($27,000); Community Events ($30,500); and Arts, Culture and Tourism ($90,000).

In all, 47 applications were received by the Town, totalling $184,475 in requests. South Simcoe Arts Council was the single largest receipient, scoring $30,000 combined. South Simcoe Railway will receive its annual amount of $25,000, while the Gibson Centre's allocation dropped from $25,000 in the past years, to $19,500.

Gibson Centre board president Janette Vander Zaag told councillors last night that she hoped the reduction did not "set a precedent where our funding is in jeopardy." She asked for council to reconsider boosting the arts and culture component back to $100,000, which has been referred to next year's budget deliberations.
