With tough economic times looming for Thompson, City Council sent a letter to the province in August, serving as notice that the City will be applying for funding through the Mining Community Reserve Fund.
The letter from Dyson was received for information by City Council last week.
Dave Dyson, the Acting Deputy Minister for Growth, Enterprise and Trade, recently replied to the letter to confirm that it had been received, and to say that the province is looking forward to discussing the applications for funding with the City as they are sent in.
Mayor Dennis Fenske told 102.9 CHTM that the next step is to meet with Dyson to discuss the process of applying for funding. He added that after that, the City, in conjunction with Thompson 2020, will work on applications.
