- OPP ISSUE WARNING FOR TEENS ON DANGERS OF IRRESPONSIBLE TEXTING »
Details about the 2011 Sault Ste. Marie Region Conservation Authority budget were announced at Tuesday night’s meeting. It was learned that the budget includes expenses of 81 thousand dollars for the Point Estates Development appeal. Authority General Manager Linda Whelan says about 40 thousand dollars in savings from routine maintenance and human resources were instrumental in covering those costs. Another 20 thousand dollars came from the group’s reserve account and another 18 thousand dollars from the Ministry of Natural Resources. Whelan says the authority is prepared to continue paying, but that will depend on how things progress. Another highlight of the budget included an overexpediture of about 10 thousand dollars in the trails budget to cover the cost of building the Hub Trail Pavilion at Fort Creek. A presentation of the final 2011 authority budget will be made at their meeting in April.
