2019 Modernization Funding Program

On December 2nd Council agenda there is a report reviewing how we spent the $725,000 received in 2019 as part of the Province’s Investment in Small and Rural Municipalities.  Consistent with the 2019 budget direction to prioritize deployment of resources on improving state of municipal roads and related infrastructure, the funds were directed to this. The report identifies all roads specifically improved using these funds.  The report indicates that future year budgets will include “re-alignment of periodic and seasonal maintenance related resource allocation that typically were required for most of the road sections identified” in the report.  As our reserve for energy management initiatives is very small, as identified in another post, this may be a source of additional funds for it.
