HKLB to benefit from community infrastructure funding

By Lindsay Advocate

This year, municipalities in Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock will receive more than $3.1 million through the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF) to address their local community infrastructure needs.

Of this $3.1 million, $283,435 will be allocated to Haliburton, $2,002,027 will be allocated to Kawartha Lakes, and $11,545 will be allocated to Brock.

OCIF aims to support municipalities as they build and repair roads, bridges, water and wastewater infrastructure.

The funding above is a part of Ontario’s approximately $200 million commitment to 424 communities to help them address their core infrastructure projects and asset management planning needs in 2021.

“Investing in local infrastructure projects that help strengthen our communities and support Ontario’s long-term economic recovery is important to help get shovels in the ground on important community projects,” said Laurie Scott, MPP for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock. “This investment provides stable funding to assist small, rural and northern municipalities address local priorities and modernize public infrastructure.”
