    Message and order approving an appropriation of Six Hundred Ninety-Two Thousand, Two Hundred Eight Dollars ($692,208.00) from the Edward Ingersoll Browne Fund for projects described in the attached Order. The Edward Ingersoll Browne Fund Commissioners met on October 23, 2019, and voted to approve these projects.
