Ten­der call for St. Lawrence wa­ter and sewer

The Southern Gazette - - NEWS -

A pub­lic ten­der call has been made for wa­ter and sewer up­grades for Lau­ren­tian Av­enue, Phase 3, in St. Lawrence.

Grand Bank District MHA Darin King con­firmed govern­ment has given ap­proval to the Town to pro­ceed with a pub­lic ten­der call for Phase 3 - wa­ter and sewer sys­tem up­grades to Lau­ren­tian Av­enue.

“This an­nounce­ment re­it­er­ates our govern­ment’s com­mit­ment to as­sist­ing the town in up­grad­ing their mu­nic­i­pal in­fra­struc­ture, and I look for­ward to work­ing with the town on fu­ture projects.”

Mr. King said this project has been ap­proved un­der the 90/10 cost-share ar­range­ment an­nounced by the provin­cial govern­ment last year as part of the Mu­nic­i­pal Cap­i­tal Works Pro­gram (MCM). Mayor Paul Pike called it wel­come news for his town. “We have made good progress with Phases 1 and 2, and this third phase will con­tinue to im­prove on that for the res­i­dents liv­ing on Lau­ren­tian Av­enue.”

Since 2007, the provin­cial govern­ment has in­vested over $24 mil­lion in mu­nic­i­pal cap­i­tal works projects, which has re­sulted in im­proved mu­nic­i­pal in­fra­struc­ture through­out the District of Grand Bank.
