The city of Marion pledged $750,000 to the Prospect Meadows baseball and softball project over the next five fiscal years Thursday night.
Approval came after members of the Marion City Council debated how and when the money would be distributed. The Council added a caveat to the pledge, specifying funding would be provided as long as the city budget allowed.
"I don't want you to think we don't support what you're doing," Councilman Joe Spinks told representatives of Prospect Meadows. "We just don't know for certain what's going to happen in the future."
