Who Will Get the Money

Last night, the Common Council Finance Committee, made up of councilmembers Rich Volo (Fourth Ward), Margaret Morris (First Ward), Vicky Daskaloudi (Fifth Ward), and Lola Roberts (Third Ward), divvyed up, in record time, the $30,000 allocated in the city budget for festivals and events. Their decisions must be approved by the full Council at its meeting tonight, but for now, here's how things stand. (For events that new and/or have never received funding from the City, their titles are hyperlinks to the funding application.)

    • Hudson Hall (Winter Walk)$5,000
    • Flag Day$5,000
    • Sankofa Blacks Arts and Cultural Festival$3,000
    • Who We Be (Juneteenth)$2,750
    • Hudson Festival Orchestra$2,750
    • Waterfront Wednesdays$2,500
    • Latinx Festival$2,500
    • Hudson-Athens Lighthouse (150th Anniversary Boat Parade)$1,500
