At least Cowtown budget cut wasn’t worse

A $50,000 budget cut will be difficult for Old Cowtown Museum to absorb, but at least it wasn’t $100,000, as the city initially proposed. That proposal seemed arbitrary and was not handled well, as Cowtown’s board president first learned about it by reading The Eagle. Good for City Manager Robert Layton for finding some additional funding and reducing the cut, though it still seems unfair that Cowtown was singled out for a large funding reduction. Here is hoping that increased attendance and fund raising will help Cowtown make up some of the cut.
