SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - The Minnehaha County Commission today approved a request from the Sioux Falls Community Foundation for f$5,000.
Foundation spokeswoman Mary Tidwell says the funds go to Sioux Falls Tomorrow Three, a ten year plan.
Commissioner Cindy Heiberger voted against the request. Heiberger realizes the Foundation wasn't thinking of the proposal when the county was doing budgets. But, she says, the Commission turned down or gave less to nonprofits that did come forward during budgeting.
The county’s money is coming from the Commissioner’s contingency fund which is approved with a simple motion
The Sioux Falls Tomorrow program began in 1994.
