Chelan City Councilman Chris Baker calls Tuesday's meeting his favorite meeting every year. It was a budget workshop where the council heard presentations from non-profit organizations in the valley. Chelan City Administrator Wade Farris says all together, they're asking for a chunk of money:

All kidding aside, the Chelan Valley Feral Cat Project asked for 5-thousand dollars to trap, spay and neuter feral cats. The charging stations, six of them, would go to the Lake Chelan Community Center. The largest request came from Thrive Chelan Valley, asking for 50-thousand dollars, followed by Heritage Heights at more than 44-thousand dollars for kitchen equipment. Councilman Baker says agencies are seeing less money coming their way:

Farris says the agencies are doing good work in the community:

Also making presentations to the council were the Chelan Senior Center, asking for 15-thousand dollars for heating and cooling infrastructure; Chelan Valley Hope, wanting 30-thousand dollars for emergency needs such as rental and utility assistance; the Chelan Valley Food Bank, asking for 15-thousand dollars for food supplies; the Lake Chelan School District, asking for 25-thousand dollars for repair and renovation of its athletic facilities; 84-hundred dollars for Meals on Wheels, and 20-thousand for Only 7 Seconds.
