Reporting Requirements: 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 final reporting on outcomes. Failure to provide final reporting of funds and all other required reports will make applicant ineligible for future subsidies. All reports shall be timely prepared and filed with the City of Mitchell prior to the opening of applications for upcoming fiscal year. Failure to comply with any of these requirements may result in the revocation of the requested subsidy as well as repayment requirements, and a determination that the organization is ineligible for future municipal subsidies for a period of years.
