Heritage Grant and Permits

On Council 6/24 agenda there is a report on an application for a permit for alterations and repairs on a designated heritage property and an application for a grant to contribute to the project.  I am very pleased that the property owner is taking good care of this property and that the Township has a program for contributing to its upkeep.  Many municipalities contribute more than King is doing but this application  shows that even our modest grant of $6,000 is a help.
