Thompson City Council recently received two letters from local MLA Kelly Bindle.
The first letter, dated February 9, 2018, was about the Grant In Lieu (GIL) with Vale and how the province could help.
Bindle said that he had spoken with Blaine Pedersen, the Provincial Minister of Growth, Enterprise and Trade, about setting up a committee to formulate a plan to deal with the reduction of revenue both from the GIL and other economic factors.
The second letter, also dated February 9, 2018, was an inquiry from the MLA with regards to the City's new financial assistance program aimed at businesses.
Bindle asked the City for updated information on the program, such as how it is being advertised and how the program has done so far.
Both letters can be found in their entirety on the most recent LIGA committee agenda.
