Title

SUBJECT: Appropriation of Funds for Use by the City’s Arts and Culture Advisory Commission

 

REPORT IN BRIEF

The City Council accepted a grant award from PG&E Corporation Foundation in the amount of $3,000 and appropriated the funds for use by the City’s Arts and Culture Advisory Commission.

 

RECOMMENDATION

Direct Staff where to appropriate funds.

 

Body

DISCUSSION

Over the past few years, the PG&E Corporation has approached the City of Merced seeking opportunities to invest in arts locally.  Last year, a $3,000 funding opportunity became available.  With the understanding that the City Council was working to establish an Arts and Cultural Advisory Commission, staff made a request of PG&E to allow the funds to be carried over to this fiscal year. The grant does not require a City match.

 

This grant will be provided to the City’s newly established Arts and Culture Advisory Committee as a project opportunity. The Commission will provide a recommendation to the City Council on the use of the funds for a specific project.  Staff will continue to seek additional funding opportunities, in partnership with the Arts and Culture Advisory Commission, to enhance this program within the City.

 

This item is being returned to the City’s Arts and Culture Advisory Commission to allow for the conversation to continue on the best project to support in the appropriation of funding.
