City boosts summer rec funding
The city will contribute $7,500 more than planned to the Red Wing YMCA’s summer recreation program this year to keep the growing program strong.
Red Wing YMCA Youth Development Director Josh Thygesen asked the council to consider upping its funding from $5,000 to $12,500 for 2014, which it approved.
Last year the program got a $20,000 grant from General Mills, but later found out it was one-time money that it wasn’t eligible for this year, Thygesen said.
