The city of Hutchinson has officially accepted a couple of large donations.
At last night’s (Tuesday) city council meeting, a donation of $30,950 was accepted from the Hutchinson Elks Lodge. That’s the second donation from the Lodge. The first was for $38,906 in November.
That money will be used for construction of an Inclusive Play Park at Elks Park.
The council also officially accepted a donation of $40,000 from AG Systems Inc. That is the first of three donations from Ag Systems totaling $70,000, to be used for the purchase of the Hutchinson Police Body Camera Systems. Two more donations will be made, one next year for $20,000, and another for $10,000 in 2019.
