Wakamow Valley Authority (WVA) executive assistant Margaret Moran said the authority intends to take advantage of a government-funding project aimed at community infrastructure.
“There are always projects we could do,” she told the Times-Herald on Monday.
On July 5, the federal government announced the launch of a new Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund for Western Canada. Community facilities, such as local arenas, community centres and sports fields are eligible for repairs and upgrades through the fund.
The fund will support, on a cost-sharing basis, repairs and improvements to existing community infrastructure accessible to the public that can be completed before March 31, 2014. Federal funding cannot exceed 50 per cent of total eligible project costs. Eligible organizations seeking less than $250,000 in funding will receive priority.
