An ordinance that would allow McMinnville officials to give $204,431 to local nonprofit organizations was met with a final attempt by one alderman to give more to Magness Library.Under the measure, the library would receive a donation of $65,000. That includes a one-time donation of $17,000 and a regular donation of $48,000.Alderman Billy Wood made a motion to remove the one-time donation of $17,000 and increase the city’s regular donation of $48,000 to $70,000. This accounts for a total increase of $5,000.“I think if they decide to push this we are going to lose,” said Wood.
