Norm Miller MPP for Parry Sound Muskoka says the government’s plan to assist municipalities with expert help with infrastructure planning will help six municipalities in Parry Sound-Muskoka and 52 other rural and northern communities plan for the future.  Miller says this will help ensure the funds are spent on the right projects.

Burk’s Falls, Carling, Lake of Bays, and Strong Townships along with the municipalities of McDougall, and Whitestone will benefit from the program that will help prioritize infrastructure projects and guide decisions on spending.

Millers said that asset management planning is challenging work, especially for small municipalities with limited resources. “I am pleased to be able to announce we’re responding by sending specialized assistance,” he said.
