ANTIGONISH: Municipal council is looking for help with a legacy project.
Last week, council for the Municipality of the County of Antigonish designated up to $45,500 for a pavilion as part of Canada’s 150th anniversary.
Warden Russell Boucher said council is also looking for help to cover the $150,000 cost of the legacy capitol project. He said the county will approach the Town of Antigonish, as well as the federal and provincial governments.
“We are going to be reaching out to others in regards to funding and if that comes to fruition, then we will be going ahead with the project,” he said.
Boucher said council already approached the Strait regional school board about placing the pavilion at a local school property, adding the board was in favour of the project.
“It’s just for us to get the rest of the funding together,” he said.
County treasurer-clerk Glen Horne said the municipality began discussing the project with the town, the school board and other partners back in September. He said the pavilion is being proposed for the St. Andrew Junior School.
