“Our government is pleased to support socio-economic and cultural infrastructure such as the old Comeauville schoolhouse, as well as public works infrastructure such as the wastewater line extension,” Fraser said. “Projects like these help our local economy grow and strive by increasing the vitality of our communities and creating meaningful employment opportunities.”
Clare Warden Ronnie LeBlanc said the funding is welcome news.
“The Municipality of the District of Clare is committed to fostering an environment which allows the private and not-for-profit sectors to thrive,” LeBlanc said. “These two enabling projects are reflective of this commitment. The proposed sewer extension will grow the Municipality’s core infrastructure and, in doing so, create opportunities for business development and job creation.”
LeBlanc said the municipality is also pleased to invest in renovation of the old Comeauville schoolhouse “as a means of supporting the hard work and dedication of the community’s many cultural stakeholders and to help position these groups for future growth and prosperity.”
