Extra Funding Dollars For Espanola

By Rosalind Russell – There could be almost a million dollars in additional funding in the Town of Espanola’s municipal budget.
Council was pleasantly surprised when Deputy Mayor Bill Foster informed them March 26th that there are dollars available for grants from both the federal and provincial governments, but it depends on how the money is spent.
The Ford government is providing up to $637,000 in funding for service delivery and related programming and the federal Liberals are providing access to $330,000 for infrastructure projects.
That’s good news for council, but Town CAO, Cynthia Townsends says the criteria will be reviewed and there are some options available, which will be discussed as part of the ongoing budget process.
