The city council may, by ordinance, accept any money or other property donated, devised, or bequeathed to it. If a bequest of property to the city is made contingent on the city’s compliance with terms contained in the bequest, the city may comply with those terms, provided such compliance is within the powers granted the city by law. Once a donation of property has been accepted in accordance with this chapter, such property may be used by the city for any municipal purpose. (Ord. 937 § 1, 2002).

Such money donations may be credited to the appropriate fund at the discretion of the finance director or designee.

(Ord. 937 § 1, 2002).
