City's community fundraising campaign off to slow start

The Spring's community fundraising campaign is off to a slow start. The My Community Investment Campaign that kicked off about a month ago allows people to give money for a specific city program or park.

It started with a 2-thousand dollar contribution and has grown by another $295 but city leaders remain optimistic

"I think this community is going to step up," said councilman Sean Paige.  "I really do. Again, right now I just think it's a question of 'Hey, let's get Christmas out of the way. Let's take care of our personal charities and our personal stuff and then we'll shift gears and deal with the city's issues."

The Pikes Peak Community Foundation is collecting contributions. The city's website has additional information.
