GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. City Council has additional funds to add to their annual budget, giving officials more money to pump into the community.

The combination of unspent contingency funds, additional savings across departments, and $400,000 in funds from the TCP, the city now has 1.5 million dollars to add to their budget.

The TCP money comes as repayment from when the city helped them with infrastructure for medical buildings on G Road.

However, that's not enough to make up for years of cuts and this afternoon council had a discussion about where it would like to see the funds distributed.

It was recommended the GVT refund will be issued this year, despite a previous decision to cancel it.

CMU will also get some money to fund classroom buildings on campus. Nothing will be made final until December, when budget decisions will be made.
