The Orange Leader
The City of Orange will read a disclosure statement for conflict of interest involving Council Member Mary McKenna and the proposed CDBG recipient Southeast Texas Hospice.
McKenna serves as executive director of Southeast Texas Hospice.
The statement is required to be read due to the appearance of a conflict of interest.
Southeast Texas Hospice was first funded in 1993, receiving funds prior to McKenna becoming a council member.
The organization is recommended for receiving $5,716 of the Community Development Block Grant.
The council will conduct a public hearing for the proposed budget for the 2013 Annual Action Plan for the CDBG Program during the 9 a.m. Tuesday meeting.
