The City Council voted 3 to 2 Tuesday night to continue funding the city's Chamber of Commerce.
Council members Lorri Galloway and Bob Hernandez voted against allocating $150,000 to the nonprofit group for the next fiscal year. They said a city audit showed that the chamber was having financial problems and that the group was not significantly increasing its membership, which is one of the terms of the funding agreement.
Mayor Curt Pringle and council members Lucille Kring and Harry Sidhu voted to renew the contract. Pringle said the chamber had improved its financial standing during the last two years and was worthy of funding.
