LOOKING FOR $UPPORT?

RURAL TRANSIT ON THE SHELF By Kirk Winter

One of the most surprising decisions taken at the City of Kawartha Lakes Council meeting recently was to abandon rural transit until 2023. The City admitted it had no concrete plans for the future of transit to serve outlying communities, despite extensive input from the Kawartha LakesHaliburton Poverty Reduction Roundtable group. There had also been a pilot project with rural buses bringing residents from Fenelon Falls and Bobcaygeon into Lindsay on a somewhat regular basis. Council abandoned funding to this pilot project late last year and no other plans currently exist. Many rural councillors, including those involved with the Rural Poverty initiative, spoke strongly in favour of the motion to apply for a provincial government grant to help cover to costs of rural transit for the City of Kawartha Lakes. They believe the service should be available especially considering the hardship experienced by those without personal transportation. After a lively discussion, Council voted 10-6 against the motion. It’s expected that the issue will be revisited in the near future.

The KLCFDC is now accepting applications in the areas of Business Development (BD) and Community Innovation (CI) for the Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP), a $48 million dollar Federal Government investment. BD Initiatives will lead to the growth of new and existing businesses and to job creation, ultimately strengthening and diversifying the City of Kawartha Lakes’ economy. CI projects enable community-led economic development that will enhance and diversify the innovative and economic capacity of the local and potentially regional economy and create employment.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Thursday February 22, 2018 • 12:00 noon Projects must be completed by November 30, 2018 Application submissions which demonstrate partnerships are encouraged. All projects must provide a minimum 50% cash, matched contribution as a requirement of funding. Additional terms and conditions may apply based on the nature of the support requested.
