Members of the Glen Burnie Improvement Association voted last night to spend nearly $1,000 in overlooked carnival revenue on civic activities and insurance.
The extra $956.86 was discovered after the association's $162,656 budget for 1997 was presented to the membership. The budget was approved last month.
Last night, members decided to use the extra money to give $500 to the North County Emergency Outreach Network (NCEON) and $250 to Corkran Middle School, and to use the remaining $206.86 for insurance.
Under the budget, NCEON had received $500; Corkran Middle School, $1,000; and $23,900 was earmarked for insurance.
NCEON, a Glen Burnie-based outreach network, helps the needy with groceries and prescriptions, and assists them in staving off evictions and utility shut-offs.
The association had the extra money because of the success of its annual carnival last summer. The final tally on its profit was $115,179, compared to $97,008 in 1995.
Revenue from the carnival accounts for about 70 percent of the budget. The organization has about 900 members -- mostly Glen Burnie homeowners.
Carnival proceeds support the association and its civic activities, including health and safety fairs and donations to programs for the needy. The association also uses carnival revenue for the upkeep of its grounds and hall on Crain Highway, which are offered free for community use.
In other business, the association elected new board members. They are Harold Bryant, Muriel Carter, Ward DeGrange, Barbara Moeller, Deitra Wengert and Richard Wengert.
