Your tax dollars hard at work:
The Kings County Court House will be updated, thanks in part to Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program (CIP 150) funding announced today by the Honourable Rob Moore, Regional Minister for New Brunswick, Minister of State (Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency) and Member of Parliament for Fundy Royal.
The Government of Canada has approved a contribution of $267,045 to update the building and improve accessibility. This funding is part of the up to $16.6 million in funding allocated for projects in Atlantic Canada under CIP 150, announced earlier this year by Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Upgrades to the building include new insulation in the walls and roof, replacing the roof system, installing a heat pump system for heating and ventilation, replacing the existing electrical entrance, as well as new wiring and lighting throughout the building.
If it's a county court house why is Ottawa fixing it?
