City Council Discusses Boys & Girls Club Funding

Published on September 19, 2012 by Larry Crippen

At Tuesday’s meeting of the Huntsville City Council, FEMA’s funding of a tornado shelter at Emancipation Park which would also be used as a facility for the Walker County Boys and Girls Club was discussed.

The City is considering a $1.8 million dollar amendment for funds from the Texas Department of Emergency Management–FEMA for the building. If approved, the City would supply matching funds only in in-kind services, with no cash outlay, while the Boys and Girls Club would be responsible for $350,000 dollars in matching funds.

Boys and Girls Club President Jack Olsta explained . . . .
