The Thompson Local News


A recent funding announcement from our MLA when it comes to funding for the Thompson Public Library isn’t as big as it was made out to be.

 

As a part of his July 27th report, Kelly Bindle said that Minister Cathy Cox approved over 120 thousand dollars in operational funding for the Thompson Public Library, something that the library’s administrator says is an annual grant.

 

Cheryl Davies said that while the library is grateful for the money, it is an annual grant that is provided to all libraries across Manitoba. She added that the grant amount has not increased in the past decade, and the City "supports the library twice that amount".

 

Bindle also spoke on the Mining Community Reserve Fund, and why Thompson does not qualify for funds from the account. Thompson Mayor Dennis Fenske told Arctic Radio News that this information had not been directly communicated to him or the City.
