2020 Sponsorship Applications Due February 17
Posted by Bryce Kendrick on January 13, 2020
Once again in 2020, the Mayor’s Office, Clerk Treasurer’s Office and City Council are providing small, monetary sponsorships to local groups and organizations.
To apply for funding, please click on this link to download the 2020 City Sponsorship Application. If you cannot download the application for any reason, you may pick one up in the Clerk Treasurer’s Office at City Hall between 8:30 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday.
You must complete the application and return it to the Clerk Treasurer’s Office by February 17, 2020. Applications will be reviewed by the Board of Public Works at their February meeting and recommended for approval at the March 5 City Council meeting.
These sponsorships are typically $500 and under. The City wants to assist as many people as we can, but there is a limit to available funding. Please be respectful and considerate of others and only ask for what you truly need.
Approved sponsorships and amounts will be posted on the city’s website shortly after the March 7 City Council meeting. Sponsorship funds will be paid when a request is submitted to the Clerk Treasurer’s Office by the approved applicant. Request for payment should be made near the time of you need it so a check is not issued early for something which is later cancelled. Please note on the application key contact information such as: name, phone number, address and email address. This is critical for processing your check.
This process has proven to work. You know in advance what support you will be receiving from the City, and the City will not be inundated with funding requests at every council meeting. We want to help your group or organization meet its financial goals, but please help us and follow the process. If you have questions, please call or email us. Thank you.
