The Thompson Local News


City Council received a letter recently from the provincial government with regards to the Thompson 2020 project that contained some very good news.

 

The letter, which was signed by the CEO of Manitoba Housing Steven Spry, says that on behalf of Manitoba Housing he is pleased to assign Harold Smith to work on the project. Smith is currently the executive director of Northern Housing Operations for Manitoba Housing.

 

This will cover up to 25% of Harold Smith’s time for up to one year, and any non-salary related costs associated with his participation in the project will be covered by Thompson 2020, and not Manitoba Housing. The assignment of his time is renewable upon the written agreement of Manitoba Housing and the City of Thompson.

 

Mayor Dennis Fenske said that while the letter is fantastic news, it’s more a matter of housekeeping. He said that the deal was already in place, but needed the paperwork to come through on both ends before it could be finalized.

 

Fenske added that this letter is an example of the Provincial Government’s commitment not only to Thompson 2020, but also to the City of Thompson.

 

Harold Smith is the assistant project manager for Thompson 2020.
