The City of Humboldt is moving ahead to support a pair of projects. To help in securing funding, City Council approved a pair of motions that allow for registered tax receipts to be issued for donations supporting the North Hospital Recreational Development Project and reshingling for the Humboldt Golf Club clubhouse.
The North Hospital Recreational Development Project has been on the books for several years with an intended green space, park, toboggan hill and other amenities. The City has been connecting with area residents willing to support the venture, much in the fashion of other park playgrounds like Water Ridge and Bill Brecht Parks. Community fundraising would be part of the mission, and so the City moving to offer charitable receipts for fundraising donations is designed to spur those efforts.
At the same regular monthly meeting, the City Council agreed to issuing donation receipts for contributions to the Humboldt Golf Club’s Roofing Campaign. A report presented to Council explained that the HGC Clubhouse shingles have been deteriorating and are now requiring immediate replacement. The Club plans to run a fundraising campaign to seek donations from the public to cover the approximately $23,000 needed with plans to conduct the work this fall. Because the Humboldt Golf Club has a long-term lease agreement for the City land on which it is situated, the City is authorized to issue receipts.
Residents who want to learn more about or donate to either project are welcome to contact City Hall for more information.
