GREENFIELD — Taxpayer money will continue to help nonprofit organizations serve seniors, youth and businesses in 2013.
More than $140,000 of tax funds was earmarked for various nonprofit organizations in Greenfield’s 2013 budget. The sum is a bit less than in 2012.
The Greenfield City Council met Tuesday to go over wish-list expenses from city departments. Requests from nonprofit organizations can be a sticking point; council members want to donate to worthy causes but still keep tax money for basic city operations.
The group decided to spend a total of $142,000 on nine organizations. That’s down slightly from nonprofit grants given by the city for the 2012 budget, when $147,000 was handed out.
