According to an article in the PA Daily news, the City Council has just approved awarding $4500 in grants to some organizations and businesses to subsidize their use of the Performing Arts Center.
Taking the $1000 grant to Keplers as an example, there is surely something amiss when the City takes public funds to subsidize a private business,such as Keplers. Surely this must be illegal. Who on council or staff is driving such an initiative?
It has been obvious for some years, that MP's $2.6 million contribution to help fund the Performing Arts Center was a huge mistake. Now this council is trying to put "lipstick on this pig".
