The Compass - - SPORTS -

It was a busy day for Min­is­ter of Mu­nic­i­pal Af­fairs Stephen Kent in the Trin­ity-Con­cep­tion-Pla­cen­tia re­gion on Jan. 20.

Along with an­nounce­ments in Whit­bourne and Up­per Is­land Cove, Kent was on hand in North River to an­nounce some $300,000 in fund­ing for the com­mu­nity.

The fund­ing is 90/10 cost shared with the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment to im­prove drainage along Ash­ford’s Lane in North River.

“With the in­tense weather pat­terns in re­cent years, hav­ing proper drainage is es­sen­tial to torns through­out the prov­ince,” said Kent. “We will work with the Town of North River to com­plete some much needed wa­ter up­grades which will pro­vide bet­ter ser­vices to res­i­dents and fam­i­lies in the com­mu­nity.”

“This will en­hance the drainage sys­tem within the com­mu­nity and lessen potet­nial flood­ing dur­ing times of heavy pre­cip­i­ta­tion,” added Port de Grave MHA Glenn Lit­tle­john.
