Donna Barnett Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA says $338,682 in combined annual funding has been provided by the province to the District of 100 Mile House and Cariboo Regional District (CRD)
The District has been issued $242,975 in Small Community funding, while another $95,707 in Regional District funding has gone to the CRD.
It is part of almost $75.2 million being invested into communities across B.C. to meet local needs, including more policing, new equipment, increased community safety initiatives, infrastructure and service delivery priorities.
“Public safety funding is important to rural communities and essential in strengthening law enforcement and providing additional resources for crime prevention. I am grateful that 100 Mile House will see this funding go back into our community to help support important programs and projects that will make a real difference in peoples’ lives.”
This is the second of two annual payments. A payment of $40 million was made in March 2015.
