Province invests $225,000 in East St. Paul roads

 

Coun. Charles Posthumus, Mayor Shelley Hart and St. Paul MLA Ron Schuler announce $225,000 in funding for roads.

 

Aug. 3, 2017 – East St. Paul received $225,000 in provincial funding through the Municipal Road Improvement Program today for work on Old Orchard Road and Raleigh Street.

During an announcement of the funds at East St. Paul’s Farmers Market site, Mayor Shelley Hart said maintaining roadways is a challenge for every municipality and she’s pleased the provincial government has dedicated important infrastructure dollars to the RM.

"Municipal infrastructure is a challenge facing every Canadian municipality whether it be roads, sewer or water. Every year, the RM of East St. Paul invests in road renewal projects,” Mayor Hart said.

"This very generous $225,000 road improvement grant from the Province of Manitoba will go a long way towards helping us maintain our roadways.”

The funding will include asphalt reconstruction on Old Orchard Road and continuing work on Raleigh Street

Hart said the municipality enjoys an excellent relationship with the Province and St. Paul MLA Ron Schuler, who was at the Farmers Market site to make the announcement.

"Our Progressive Conservative government understands that municipalities and local residents depend on investments in important infrastructure projects such as these,” Schuler said.

"Improving our road and transportation infrastructure ensures that goods and services continue to flow efficiently across Manitoba, which helps to grow our communities and the provincial economy.”

The Municipal Road Improvement Program was developed in partnership with the Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM) and provides 50/50 cost-shared funding for municipal road projects approved under the program. The investments in East St. Paul are part of $12 million in municipal road improvement projects across Manitoba.
