The Peace River Regional District is trying to play fair with a recent funding request.

At the last board meeting, the South Peace Seniors Access Society approached directors asking for $20,000.

Spokesperson Sharon Miller said the money would go towards a South Peace Community Health Guide, similar to the guide printed by the North Peace Save Our Northern Seniors.

Last year, the PRRD had granted $8,000 to SONS for the printing and distribution of health guides.

On Thursday, PRRD staff recommended that the board give the south peace group $8,000 as well, rather than the requested $20,000.

However, Chair Karen Goodings advised that the money would simply be going into the budget, which hasn’t been finalized yet. So there’s still time to amend the funding before the budget is set in stone.

The board voted unanimously to include the money in the PRRD 2010 budget.
