Two organizations will share $10,000 in community benefit funding to be distributed by the city of Galt.
The Galt City Council decision made Tuesday goes against prior years, when the McFarland Living History Ranch was the sole recipient of the funding. But in March 2012, council members adopted a policy to allow all official nonprofit organizations in Galt to apply for the money.
