Federal Government Gas Tax Fund grants $2.8 million to Town of Creston.
The Town of Creston will be able to fully finance an infrastructure project with help from the Federal Government’s Gas Tax Fund.
The town received just under $2.8 million to develop a long-term solution for the removal of bio-solid waste from the Bulk Volume Fermenter
Mayor Ron Toyota says the town currently has short-term solutions but this project will save on costs.
He adds the project will streamline the system and improve safety and this project is a necessary part of the town’s infrastructure.
The new project will conform with the Ministry of Environment standards and lower solids handling costs. The Federal Government distributed just under $1.9 million to 112 projects in BC through the gas tax fund.
The Union of BC Municipalities administers the fund in the province.
