Ontario is providing the Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen with $1.66M to improve existing water systems and ensure sufficient water for fire protection.
The province approved 78 projects through the application-based component of the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF) which will help communities maintain, repair, expand or update vital infrastructure such as bridges, roadways, water mains and sewage treatment systems.
Supporting small, rural and northern communities is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, revitalizing public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
“Roads, bridges and water infrastructure are essential to rural communities across the province. By partnering with communities like Havelock and investing in these projects, our government is committed to ensuring municipalities have the tools they need to build and maintain critical infrastructure.”
Mayor Ron Gerow stated “The Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen is extremely pleased that the Township was approved under the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF) for the new standpipe. The new standpipe will ensure that the Township is able to meet future water needs for residents, businesses and fire protection. The Township is grateful to the Provincial Government for providing our Township with funding of $1.66 M.”
