Salem selectmen deny grant request to Boys and Girls Club for computers
The town’s Lancaster Fund is disbursed by selectmen to nonprofits that benefit Salem. The funds are typically for one-time events or special programs, and not for the general operational expenses of nonprofits.
Selectman Stephen Campbell agreed with Keller, noting that the plan to upgrade 20 computer workstations at the club would entail an ongoing expense for the next four years.
“I am familiar with the club, and I think there must be something at the club that would fit, but this doesn’t,” Lyons said.
“It will also be a check on us to have the opportunity to make sure the standards are applied fairly,” said Lyons.
Selectmen stated that the request was for a one-time event.
