Federal funding will end 'wheezing and sputtering' in Merville
Upgrades to the Merville Community Hall will be helped with $13,230 from the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund, MP John Duncan announced Tuesday.
“The Merville Hall is a valuable community resource and by making these kinds of investments to local infrastructure, we are helping boost economic activity and maintaining a high quality of life for local residents and all Canadians,” Duncan said.
With the funding, the Merville Community Association will install a new heating system, including the installation of a new gas line, gas furnace, thermostat with control wiring, and condensate pump. Necessary modifications will also be made to the ductwork.
"We are delighted to be receiving assistance from the Government of Canada to upgrade the wheezing and sputtering heating system of the big yellow Merville Hall,” said MCA president Craig Freeman.
“With this and other recent renovations, our hall is it is beginning to attract more users and consequently, to regain its place as a community hub for Merville.”
