Grand Coulee funds requests


The Grand Coulee City Council voted Nov. 19 to partially fund several requests from other organizations.

From the city’s “stadium tax fund,” also known as lodging or hotel/motel tax fund, the city agreed to donate $8,000 to the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce for tourism promotion, $7,000 to The Ridge Riders for tourism promotion, and $4,000 to the Coulee Area Park & Recreation District.

CAPRD manages North Dam Park, where several local events are held in addition to the recreation offered by the park.

Additionally, the council approved a $3,500 donation to the local senior meals program, declining a request to increase that amount to $4,000.

The council also approved to stick with a donation to the Grant County Health District equal to $1 per resident in the city, approximately $1,250, not the requested $2 per resident.
