City Council Approves Updated List of Groups that can Receive Community Empowerment Funds

On Monday night, December 3, 2007, the San Leandro City Council approved a list of community empowerment fund recipients. Under Mayor Shelia Young, there was also a Mayor's Community Fund, which came from a separate City account that was funded by donations and fundraisers, including an annual golf tournament. Community empowerment funds come from the city's general fund and can be used by members of the City Council to support community projects. Each councilmember will have $2,500 each year at their discretion while the Mayor will have $5,000 each year at his discretion, for a total of $20,000 per year.

Councilmember Diana Souza ensured that the Washington Manor Swim Team was added to the list prior to its approval by the City Council.
