Upper Clearwater Hall gets funds for upgrades

TNRD has approved up to $10,000 from the Federal Gas Tax Community Works Fund for upgrades at the Upper Clearwater Community Hal

Thompson-Nicola Regional District has approved the expenditure of up to $10,000 from the Federal Gas Tax Community Works Fund to go towards energy-efficient upgrades at the Upper Clearwater Community Hall in Clearwater.

With the funding, the Upper Clearwater Farmers’ Institute, which owns and operates the facility, will upgrade the hall’s ceiling insulation.

This comes on top of other recent “green” initiatives that have resulted in a significant reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions from the facility.

“The money is going to great use as it will make the community hall more energy efficient, as well as more functional;’ said Tim Pennell, Electoral Area A (Wells Gray Country) director.

The Upper Clearwater Farmers’ Institute is a non-government organization (NGO). Under an amendment to the Gas Tax Agreement, buildings and infrastructure owned by NGOs can be eligible for funding so long as the NGO abides by the terms and conditions of the agreement.

 

To date, the TNRD has approved $2.69 million for 66 projects under the Federal Gas Tax Fund, which provides funding in support of municipal infrastructure upgrades that contributes
