Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - Some area non-profits may be looking elsewhere for money if the City of Moorhead cuts back on its donations.

Some area non-profits may be looking elsewhere for money if the City of Moorhead cuts back on its donations. As part of a budget plan now on the table for members of the City Council, there is a proposal to eliminate dollars that have been given yearly to Metro Youth Partnership, Humane Society, Arts Partnership and First Link. The cutbacks would save the city $43,000. Valley Water Rescue would be spared because it is considered a public safety non-profit.

Mike Redlinger – Moorhead City Manager: “In some cases these are organizations that are providing services that we don't provide and are filling a gap and so they have been funded and been there for a long time and we will need to provide that service with our staff or work with another partner to work with.”

Final action on the budget is not expected until the Dec. 12th Meeting.
