NL council pledges additional funds to social services
By Lori Lindner
North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY– The City of North Liberty will give $97,000 to various social services in fiscal year 2015.
Last Tuesday, Feb. 25, the city council approved a pledge of $10,000 to the 1105 Project, a capital campaign that consolidated social service organizations into a single location in Iowa City.
When council member Terry Donahue balked at giving funds to support a construction project outside of town– initially the lone voice of dissent– he leveraged his vote to get another $4,000 for the North Liberty Community Food and Clothing Pantry.
