BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Two separate motions for funding for the Dr. Martin Luther King
Jr. Community Center failed at Wednesday's EBR Metro Council meeting.
Councilwoman Denise Marcelle was trying to redirect
$51,000 from the center's prior years' and current self-generated revenues. It
is money that already belongs to the center but needed a council vote to redirect.
Marcelle said it would provide funding for center events and services, children
programs, and a volunteer dinner. Speakers did get up at the EBR Metro Council
meeting asking council members to fund the community center.
When Marcelle motioned to pass the item, no one seconded.
Some council members expressed they did not have adequate information on the
item to vote.
Councilwoman Ronnie Edwards said she was offended and people in the
community would blame the council for refusing to help the community only
because they had further questions.
Marcelle motioned for a substitute, asking the
item to be deferred by two weeks so her colleagues could study up on the item.
Again, no one seconded her motion.
