We published a story today about the Mitchell City Council’s decision to give $10,000 to a regional development group called the Dakota Heartland Development Association.
I’m wondering about the reaction of some other nonprofits in town. I’ve sat through plenty of City Council budget hearings at which various nonprofits requested money, only to be turned away.
I’m not saying the donation to the regional development group was a bad thing. I’m just wondering how the council’s gift to an organization that serves towns other than Mitchell is being received by people within Mitchell.
