MSI DOLLARS UNTOUCHED
The Premier’s commitment not to balance the budget on the back of municipalities has been kept according to the Hon. Richard Starke MLA for Vermilion-Lloydminster, Minister of Tourism, Parks and Recreation.
He spoke to last week’s provincial budget during a telephone interview with the Weekly Review.
Municipal Sustainability Initiative (MSI) funding which was suppose to come to an end in 2016-17, was given an extended life span in last Thursday’s budget.
While there was no definite run date attached to the program, there is no longer an end date.
