Cumberland receives money to fund official community plan review

The Village of Cumberland has received funding from the Gas Tax Program for its Official Community Plan review, which is underway.

The program is part of the agreement for the transfer of federal gas tax revenues between Canada, the Province and the Union of British Columbia Municipalities.

The $113,000 of funding previously allocated for the OCP review may be reallocated for other projects by council in its 2013 budget.

Council will begin work on its budget through March, April and May. The five-year financial plan must be approved by May 15.
