At its meeting last week the Logan City Municipal Council voted unanimously to approve a one-time funding assistance of $150,00 to help the Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre get through what has become a financially difficult year. That funding <a href=”http://www.cachevalleydaily.com/news/local/article_4834c624-b42d-11e7-92c5-2bfc46980b04.html” target=”_blank”>came with conditions</a>.
Tuesday, members of the Cache County Council were also asked to make a donation and a public hearing has been set to deal with a request for $80,000 to help the organization.
If approved at a public hearing next month, $40,000 will come from the tourism budget and the remaining $40,000 from restaurant funds.
Mark Ensign, representing the opera company, said the contribution means a great deal to the company.
