The Dalles Council Developing Policy On Funding Requests

The Dalles City Council has approved development of a policy on how to address funding requests from various organizations.  Mayor Steve Lawrence feels decisions on a number of the requests for general fund or transient room tax monies are made on emotion rather than based on policy.  He says some things would become a line item in the municipal budget, while others would be considered on a case-by-case basis.  He said the policy will include submission and review requirements, and meet a purpose within set definitions.  Lawrence says interim City Manager Julie Krueger will put together a process for implementation, and then the City will use it for a year to see how it works.
