It is the intent of both agencies to work together for the common good of the citizens by not providing public funding for multiple competing program offerings. If the Youth Center was not providing recreational services for our youth as well as citizens, the City of Fayetteville would need to assume the responsibility.
For the past several years, the city transferred $205,350 to the FBGC from the general fund. Within the agreement, the FBGC building is used as an emergency shelter for the City of Fayetteville. The contract and an ordinance to waive competitive bidding will come before City Council after the annual budget is approved.
