The St. Pete Area Chamber of Commerce and a growing entertainment district near downtown was awarded a piece of city funding being divvied up for various economic development and community revitalization projects. As part of a new budget, city council used $180,000 from its reserves, freeing up that amount from the general fund. But after a morning filled with bickering about how to spend the money, board members voted unanimously to decide what to do with the remaining $124,000 later.
