City Council Special Budget Session, June 23rd – Continued

 

Non-profits Organizations

City of ClarksvilleClarksville, TN – As you may recall, I had requested that Mayor McMillan establish a committee or review of how the city determined and funded non-profit requests shortly after she took office.  The amounts given and the organizations that received funding was historically a closed effort.  The same basic groups kept receiving the funding.

The Federal Open Market Committee left short-term interest rates unchanged and retained its conditional commitment to keep rates low for “an extended period.” The FOMC also repeated that its $600 billion asset purchase program will be completed by the end of this month. The FOMC noted that the economic recovery is continuing, but “somewhat more slowly” than had been expected. The slower pace of the recovery “reflects in part factors that are likely to be temporary, including the damping effect of higher food and energy prices on consumer purchasing power and spending as well as supply chain disruptions associated with the tragic events in Japan.
