City council is being asked to reconsider their decision to slash $50,000 from urban renewal funding in the 2013 budget.
Coun. Murray Blight (Victoria) gave notice at the end of Monday night’s meeting that he will bring forward a motion on Feb. 4 to reconsider the reduction in funding for Renaissance Brandon.
Since 2008, the city has provided $250,000 annually to Renaissance Brandon, the city’s downtown development corporation. Council recently voted to reduce the funding to $200,000 in the 2013 budget.
The full loss will be $100,000, as the Province of Manitoba matches the dollars that the city provides.
