Efforts are almost complete on the application for a $100,000 grant under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) for resilience to COVID-19, according to Kim Heaton, Mono’s director of recreation.

The grant funding will be used to aid in the building of tennis courts in the Island Lake Family Park Parkland Development. The grant, which is part of the joint federal/provincial government funding to support public infrastructure, falls under the specified guidelines for parks improvements.

Mono’s allotment is $100,000 and the municipality is requesting the entire amount. It is a condition that Council endorses the proposed project in a resolution, which was what the Director was requesting.

Council roundly recommended the project and passed the required resolution.
