Town Wants $300,000 Grant Redirected
A $300,000 provincial legacy grant to the Town of Provost that was originally applied to use for a new arena wont be used for that project.
Chief administrative officer of the Town of Provost, Terry Hurlbut said on February 22 that a letter was being sent to the province that day asking that the funds be redirected so that a joint project of the Provost and District Museum and the Bodo Archaeological Society could take place.
The two groups met recently and talked in general terms about co-operating on a project that might include several ideas such as the partial building of the museum in town. The Bodo Archaeological Society would likely have a wing for some of their displays.
Hurlbut says the money from the province was not enough for the arena project. Rules for the funding stipulate that the legacy grant be used for a capital project that would be built and operating by the end of 2006.
The town, however is still definitely interested in putting up a new arena and are looking at the possibilities of one other provincial grant and the possibility of tapping into two federal grants.
A reply over the $300,000 provincial grant is expected within 10 days.
