AUGUSTA,Ga (WJBF)Cuts could be coming for outside agencies getting money from the city of Augusta.

Commissioners set to vote next week on a proposal to cap payments to non-government organizations at 25 thousand dollars

Some commissioners say cuts are needed but still have questions about the proposal.

“I don’t know whether the 25 thousand affects like a Project access because that’s a significant cut these non-profits have to understand they can’t rely on our government funding every at the same level the needs are outgrowing the wants now we have to cut them let’s cut them more in a gradual aspect,” says Commissioner Sean Frantom.

 

Under the proposal the Augusta History Museum, Lucy Laney Museum, and the Arts Council -would not- be included in the 25 thousand dollar cap.
