The Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp. Board of Directors voted 11-3 to recommend continuing funding of $75,000 to the Buffalo City Tourism Foundation, but tabled voting on the foundation’s operations funding.
The City Council voted 3-2 to rescind a decision that would have meant the Buffalo City Tourism Foundation had to get council approval for grants in excess of $2,000.
The council had voted June 2 to require BCTF to submit grant applications for more than $2,000 for its approval as part of its OK for the next four years’ funding. Monday, Councilmen Ken Schulz, Pat Nygaard and Charlie Kourajian voted to eliminate the requirement with Mayor Clarice Liechty and Councilwoman Kelani Parisien voting against eliminating it.
Well, here we go again. In the name of accountability, three members of the City Council have decided that the work of the Buffalo City Tourism Foundation’s grants committee needs to be micromanaged. First it was the Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp. Now it’s BCTF. It won’t be long before the city’s Finance and Legal Committee meetings will be all-day affairs.
