This is when community groups make their case for a 2012 Base Budget Grant. The public is invited to these meetings, so they can see how much these groups are asking for and what council will be basing their decision on.
This year there are 19 groups asking for grants which total $950,000 all together. Grants must be applied for annually.
Those interested in obtaining a grant from the city had to apply by September 15, 2011. They will find out if their application has been approved in January.
