Councilors met March 14 to address a brief agenda of business.
The Nocona Economic Development Corporation’s (Type A and B) request for $10,000 to the Nocona Youth Sports Association for the Little Dribbler’s Tournament was approved. City Secretary Revell Hardison said the funds will be used for directional signage and other similar items for the large number of people who attend the tournament.
The Nocona Chisholm Trail Rodeo Association made a request for $1,600 from the hotel/motel tax funds to use for advertising its rodeo activities. Hardison said the association used to receive funds and have made the request to the hotel/motel tax committee in the last few years, but it was not approved.
