Canada 150 Community Infrastructure funds sought to address heating/cooling issues at community centre

Puslinch councillors are applying for Canada 150 Community Infrastructure funds to address the heating/cooling system at the Puslinch Community Centre.

At the June 3 council meeting, CAO Karen Landry stated council has agreed to a recommendation for a Canada 150 Community Infrastructure application.

Landry said that on June 3, councillors agreed with a financial report to make the application.

It also means that council pre-approves funding of the electrical system upgrades of $26,000 currently in the 2016 forecast to be funded from the equipment replacement working reserve in the amount of $10,189 and the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program in the amount of $15,811.

Council also pre-approved funding of the heating and cooling system upgrades of $18,000 currently in the 2017 forecast to be funded from the equipment replacement working reserve in the amount of $6,000, the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program in the amount of $6,000 and taxation levy in the amount of $6,000.

Pre-approval of the projects are conditional upon receipt of grant funding.

The intent of the Canada 150 funding is for the rehabilitation, renovation and expansion of existing community infrastructure assets that are non-commercial in nature and located in southern Ontario.

Ineligible projects include construction of new infrastructure, temporary installments, or facility expansions that would result in a significant increase of the asset (i.e. more than 50% increase in square footage).

The project categories eligible for funding under the program include community centres, parks, recreational trails, local arenas, gymnasia, sports fields, tennis, basketball, volleyball or other sport-specific courts, and other existing community infrastructure assets for public benefit that have a local community impact, such as local roads.
