WILLMAR -- A $1,516 donation from the Minerd T. Wareberg Estate to the Willmar Area Senior Citizens Community Center was approved Monday by the Willmar City Council's Finance Committee.


City policy requires the council to approve all donations without taking into consideration the amount of the gift.

LeAnne Freeman of the Senior Center staff requested the money be used to help complete projects in the center's Bremer Room to include coffee bar, paint and flooring.

In other business, the committee voted to appropriate $1,000 in the Senior Center budget for the meal site and center special events.

The money was a donation from the Senior Citizens Club to buy supplies for the meal site and center special events.

The committee's action will be forwarded to the full council for final action.

In other business, the committee discussed revenue sources listed in Mayor Les Heitke's city budget for 2009. The council will take final action in December on the 2009 budget.
