    Hi friends,

    The following lines has written by I, and I have doubt if I can use dedication of ? I saw the usage of dedication to but never heard dedication of, but I feel I have to use it here.

    Refurbishment of the buildings providing service to the public or dedication (of) a part of governmental revenues to erect new public construction has become the subject of heated debate between among an overwhelming majority (majorities) of people in recent years.

    Thanks,
    Amir

    Yes, you need "of". You could also say ...or dedicating a part of governmental revenue to/for/towards new public construction...
