Province provides funding for local municipalities


Municipalities across the Peace River Region are receiving more than $2 million in funding from the B.C. government.

The money is being provided to the various cities and towns as a combination of the Strategic Community Investment Fund, the return of net traffic fine revenues and the reimbursement of carbon taxes that were paid last year.

The Province says the financial aid is expected to help stimulate local economies, as well as provide funding for various projects, including safety initiatives.

Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm says the Province is devoted to creating jobs in the North.

Part of the funding provided through the Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program is based on local governments reporting their individual steps to becoming carbon neutral.
