The Baton Rouge Metro Council is working to decide how to spend about $200,000.

The money is what's left in a discretionary account that originally was in Mayor Kip Holden’s hands.

So far, several council members have different ideas on how to spend the money; the requests range from summer programs to crime fighting.

All of those requests add up to more than $400,000.

Council is expected to come to some agreement at tomorrow's meeting.
