Funding for the new sewage treatment plant, which will be built to service a community of 6,000, is coming soon. Any day now Mayor Elinor Warner expects to hear that the federal government and the provincial government will each kick in one-third of the $6.8 million for the plant, with the village making up the remainder.
The grant was supposed to be announced earlier this year but despite the delay in the announcement the mayor remains optimistic that the funding will come through any day now.
Meanwhile a number of projects are on hold, waiting for the green light to proceed.
