Should the City support the Lake Oswego School District through a one-time $150,000 grant for orchestra and aquatics programs for the 2010-11 fiscal year?
IntroductionOn July 2, 2010 the Mayor and City Council received a letter from the Chairman of the Lake Oswego School District Board, requesting City financial assistance in coping with the impacts of the decrease in State school funding. The request includes the options of providing City support of the District's orchestra and aquatics programs. The total of the financial request is $150,000 and would be for the 2010-11 fiscal year only. The funding would come from franchise fees in order to address restrictions set forth in Measure 5.
The Council will consider if they should:
- Provide $150,000 in one-time financial support through franchise fees to the School District for their orchestra and swimming programs.
- Provide one-time financial support through franchise fess to the School District in another amount specified by Council.
- Not provide financial support to the School District at this time.
This item will be discussed in the September 7 Council meeting. The full Council Report for this item follows.
