Applications for City Funds for fiscal year 2020 are now available. Proposals must be submitted in accordance with the budget cycle schedule and proposal format outlined in the application. Completed applications must be received on or before June 5, 2019.
Mitchell City Council budget meetings are held in August and in September and are open to the public. Applicants are encouraged to attend all budget meetings to remain informed during the process. However, applicants may or may not be invited to make a presentation on their funding proposal. Applicants should be prepared to answer questions based on the application. All proposed handouts must be provided to the City in advance with the application for approval and distribution. Final action on the budget occurs at the last Council meeting in September.
If awarded funding, the City of Mitchell requires all recipients of municipal funds to identify the reason for the subsidy, the public purpose served by the subsidy, the specific performance measurements to be attained, and timely final reporting on outcomes. Failure to provide final reporting of funds and all other required reports will make applicant ineligible for future subsidies.
For questions on the application process, please contact Stephanie Ellwein, City Administrator at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 605-995-8143.
