The Adams County Record of Council, Idaho

The house that the city of Council bought for a dollar recently sold for $22,000, but the city can't keep the money. HUD regulations state that the money, minus the city's expenses of $5,271.20, must be given to non-profit organizations that benefit low and moderate income people. The remaining total to be awarded was $16,728.80.

The decision as to which groups would get the money was on the agenda at the last city council meeting, but HUD had not yet ruled on which groups qualified, so the council held a special meeting on Monday night.

Each council member submitted their ideas for how much to award each of the nine organizations that qualified. After some discussion, compromising and juggling figures, the final amounts were determined:

$ 6,000.00 to the Council Senior Center

$ 2,000.00 to Kozy Kids

$ 2,000.00 to the Ministerial Association

$ 3,000.00 to Loaves and Fishes food bank

$ 1,000.00 to the Royal Rangers

$ 728.80 to the Council Valley Free Library

$ 1,000.00 to the Adams County Health Center

$ 1,000.00 to Rose Advocates
