Azusa : Sports Leagues Funded

February 23, 1992

The City Council voted to give $10,000 each to the Azusa National and American little leagues and to Junior All-American Football.

Mayor Eugene Moses initiated the motion after hearing a request from the National League president for money for field improvements. Representatives of the other groups did not specify a use, but Moses said it would help make up for losses because some parents can't afford Little League fees during the recession.

The requests were sparked by a $3,000 allocation Jan. 20 to the American League to repair a building damaged by fire.

Although the city's budget is operating with a surplus, staff members told the council that all of the money is earmarked until June, 1992.

Council members voted to take the $30,000 from money previously allocated for a temporary job center. Plans for the center have been shelved.

Councilmen Tony Naranjo and John Dangleis voted against the motion, saying it didn't comply with budget procedures.
