COUNTY HOPES TO FIND FUNDS TO SUPPLEMENT PARAMEDIC AND SOCIAL HOUSING PROGRAMS 11/6/2018 7:09:45 AM
The cancellation of the Cap and Trade program could leave local municipalities with extra funding. The CAO and Clerk for Renfrew County, Paul Moreau says, through a line by line audit, they were able to find a billion dollars in excess provincial funding. Moreau says the county will be looking to apply for some of that money to be used where there are shortfalls.
Moreau says county staff will be drafting a letter to the Minister of Finance to see how they can access these funds.
