Yakima City Council Discussing Funding Options

Yakima City Council.

The Yakima City Council is meeting tonight to discuss several project funding options.

The first is whether or not to proceed with a multimillion dollar revitalization plan for North First Street -- that includes expanding the sidewalks, and adding vegetation, at the cost of reducing the size of the roadway.

The second topic includes approving an application by the Union Gospel Mission to apply for a $1.5 million federal loan.

The money would go towards expanding the shelter's housing and medical center.
