Whiie discussions are going on about the newest federal money to bolster the city's economy, some new developments are going on with the Tribal Funding money. Tribal Funding was allocated money from general revenue sharing two years agu to purchase a People's Ballroom. Republicans, unhapp"y over the group's use of the money to buy a building, later revoked the contract. At C'ouncil Monday, Republicans voted to reallocate the money to pay off electric bilis from the Blues and Jazz Festival, and to hire a code enforcement inspector in Building and Safety. A move by Carol Jones to return the money to Tribal Funding failed to pass the Republican majority. At this point; it appears the only way the money will be given back to Tribal Funding is through the courts. A suit against the Republicans and the city is now pending.
