    Margo,
    Would you know or more specifically, who might know who assigns the dollar amounts to the charitable groups identified in Article 2. I find it odd that the Fletcher Library receives four times the amount of BRGN. Also the Senior Center is awarded $2000 and lesser well known organizations get only $30-$50.
    I would think whomever is putting together this list needs to look at an accountability record of hoe these organizations are spending this money, and where justified readjust the allotments to more genuinely reflect the needs of Plymouth residents.

  2. Hi Bill –
    Each organization submits a request to the Town to be included in the budget voted at Town Meeting, so it’s up to the organization to ask for what they think they need.
    Best,
