The Sweet Springs Board of Aldermen met Monday night.  They had a somewhat heated discussion on how to distribute certain funds.  The Board discussed the possibility of not funding advertising for a Ducks, Unlimited banquet, but decided instead to reduce the amount for all receiving aid .  They had requests totaling about $12,000, but had $10,000 to distribute from a hotel tax.  Money in this fund is required to go toward promoting tourism in Sweet Springs.  The board also increased the city’s water and sewer rates and approved a Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan Resolution.
