From City Manager Ron Chandler’s website, RonsReport.org:
“I am honored that the Tax Payers and Citizens of Lincoln City allow the City Council to distribute these funds to the nonprofits that are serving the needs of Lincoln City residents. There are never enough funds but we know these checks assist in the effort,” said Mayor Dick Anderson.
The City receives funding requests from local nonprofits each year as part of its budget preparation process. Once the City Council has approved the budget (which occurs after the Council receives a recommendation from the Budget Committee), a Committee of City Councilors reviews the applications for funding and makes a recommendation to the full City Council as to which agencies should receive funds.
