Horizons reduces carry over

Horizons reduces carry over

By ALLAN TINKER
Updating street corner signs, a business move to larger quarters and improvements at Hoffer Lake were all determined to be more economic development than poverty issues and the proposals were recommended to the Sheridan County Economic Development for more long term consideration. The Horizons meeting as held on Oct. 27 at McClusky City Hall and had been advertised in several venues.
One Horizon staff asked how much longer Horizons and this disbursement of funds would continue. They appear ready to address true poverty concerns and did, funding books and educational presentations at the elementary school and contributing to the Food Bank community project.
A bookmobile with a registration fee requirement for each user also declined but could be reconsidered, as others could be, pending further information.
Other than Ladora Schuessler and Gazette Editor Allan Tinker, none of the public appeared with requests or suggestions for the remaining funds. The funds, meant to address poverty needs, are given as grants. Programs or needs that had other sources of money, such as tax collections, bank loans or were deemed “beautification” did not receive favorable consideration by most present.
