Otsego debates whether to give I-94 coalition contribution

Rhonda Baack, the new executive director of the I-94 Chamber of Commerce, gave the Otsego City Council an update Nov. 14 about the funding program for the I-94 Corridor Coalition.
The coalition has requested Otsego pay membership dues of $.50 per capita with the council previously requesting a financial report before paying the dues. Baack stated Monticello has paid its dues.
Otsego has not budgeted for this expense, as the budget has already been set. Last time Otsego participated in this project they contributed $7,500.
Council members tabled this issue until their next meeting.
