BRIEF: Foundations help Macon-Bibb County consolidation
Dec 12, 2012 (The Macon Telegraph - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Costs for the Macon-Bibb County Consolidation Task Force are now expected to exceed the $500,000 mark, but a good chunk of that bill will be carried by local foundations.
NewTown Macon and the Peyton Anderson Foundation on Wednesday morning announced a $50,000 donation to aid consolidation efforts. The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation is also soliciting a grant proposal of $62,142 from the task force for equipment that would web stream and televise meetings to better inform the community.
The task force's Finance Committee welcomed the NewTown-Peyton Anderson money Wednesday.
"That's a good thing to wake you up," committee chairwoman Pearlie Toliver said at the 7 a.m. meeting.
With the full funding for the communications plan included in the committee's recommendation, total costs are now $530,126. Expected additional costs include a benefits consultant to help design the new government's health, life, dental and vision insurance plans.
