Downtown Angola Coalition Made Request to City Officials to Fund Executive Director Position
Wednesday, August 4, 2021

ANGOLA — The Downtown Angola Coalition has made a request to city leaders for funding that would pay an executive director.

A request was made to the Angola Common Council this week to budget funding for an executive director, but no action was taken at their meeting on Monday.

DAC President Colleen Everage says the only thing keeping the downtown organization from being an accredited national Main Street is the fact that they do not have a paid director. She says becoming a nationally accredited Main Street would open greater opportunities for funding.

The DAC’s request to the Angola Common Council was for $65,000. Although no action was taken, council members said further consideration could be made after more information was provided about what grants the DAC organization planned to use in order to sustain a director over time.
