Restricted funds

The Officer Brenton fund is restricted; its funds come from donations after the officer was shot and killed on Halloween at the corner of 29th & Yesler. Donations came from citizens, the Police Guild and the companies involved in providing the materials for the memorial donated their goods & services, so the fund is large. There is a $10,000 CD in addition to the amount you see in the bank account. This fund is managed by the neighbors who organized the committee to install a memorial at that corner. Leschi CC pays SDOT each December for use of the parking strip. That fee comes from the Officer Brenton Fund as does the annual upkeep. The flowers are replaced usually on an annual basis.
