Groups seeking funds must show budget
Non-profit organizations that request donations from the tow of Ocean City will be required to show Ocean City officials a copy of the organization's budget.
This week, the Ocean City Council agreed that city officials should be aware of where the donated money will be going. A professional audit won't have to be presented, just a simple financial disclosure, said Ocean City Mayor Roland "Fish" Powell.
