Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes is getting a $7.6 million investment from the provincial government. Steve Clark, Ontario’s Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, made the announcement today.  

The dollars will go towards local service delivery and efficiency. Clark says taxpayers need their local government to deliver modern, efficient services that show respect for their hard-earned dollars.

He says this funding will help small and rural municipalities Ontario improve how they deliver services and reduce the ongoing costs of providing those services.

North Grenville will see $632,832 of the $7.6 million. The United Counties of Leeds and Grenville will get $725,000.

A total of 405 municipalities across the province will receive funding.
