Dur­ing a meet­ing held Nov. 19, the Town of For­tune ap­proved a re­quest to bor­row $30,832.

These funds will be used to cover the town’s por­tion for a project un­der the small com­mu­ni­ties’ fund for wa­ter and sewer up­grades to Hayter Street.

With a to­tal project cost of $340,000, the re­main­der of the fund­ing re­quired for the up­grades will come from the fed­eral and pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ments, though no of­fi­cial an­nounce­ments have yet been made.

Town man­ager Linda Col­lier told The South­ern Gazette on Thurs­day, Nov. 29, that work on the project will be­gin in the spring.

The town has se­cured the ser­vices of In­no­va­tive NL as the project man­ager for the Hayter Street up­grades.
