Business group can’t budget?

Via “Downtown group seeks cash“:

The group that’s getting the new downtown improvement district off the ground is running low on cash.

The Olympia Downtown Association will start collecting dues again from its members, and has asked the city for $23,850 to support its programs and launch the improvement district.

Interesting choice, journalistically, to not name the ODA in the first paragraph.

So, first, the ODA was opting not to collect fees while seeking support for the PBIA, which is an interesting point. But they also have spent their allowance and are already asking for money from the City … not an auspicious beginning.

The comment about graffitti removal reminds me that I wanted to get a picture of that one that appeared above the New Moon before it goes away.
