RESOLUTION NO. *RS2014*-*1316*
Resolution to appropriated one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) from the
Undesignated Fund Balance of the General Fund of the General Services
District to fund a grant to Neighborhoods Resource Center for the purpose
of providing a portion of the funding for its program services.
The above agenda is on December 16th Council consent agenda.
I am not questioning if NRC is worthy of receiving $100,000 from Metro. I
understand NRC has been helping neighborhoods especially fighting against
crime and strength certain area of neighborhoods where help was desperately
I just have to wonder if there is a conflict of interest. The sponsor of
the bill, CM Scott Davis is a board member of NRC. CM Davis being a board
member of the organization regardless of a pay, and getting financial
benefit to that organization seem to have unfair advantage to other
Non-profit organization which would like to seek Metro assistance.
What do you think?
