Kingfisher receives funds
Improvements to rural Enderby’s community infrastructure are on track thanks to a federal cash infusion.
Colin Mayes, MP for Okanagan-Shuswap, announced federal funding for improvements to the Kingfisher Community Society’s hall, school and park under the federal government’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF).
“Our government is committed to creating jobs, growth and long-term prosperity in our communities,” said Mayes.
“By improving facilities such as this, we are helping to boost economic activity and maintain a high quality of life for Canadians.”
Federal funding of $29,205 will help improve the Kingfisher Community Society’s hall, school and park. The project will upgrade the heating, electrical and plumbing systems, improve energy efficiency, replace windows, and improve the park’s underground water sprinkler system. The improvements will furnish these community assets with modern, reliable components, and reduce both their ecological footprint and ongoing operational costs.
“The Kingfisher Community Society is very excited to be awarded this infrastructure funding,“ said Murray MacDonald, Kingfisher Community Society chairperson.
“The funding will help us lower our dependency on fossil fuels and ensure our viability into the future.”
