By: admin | Tags: News

It was, according to Cobourg Mayor Gil Brocanier, "good news Friday." Northumberland-Peterborough South M.P. Kim Rudd with Northumberland-Quinte West M.P.P. Lou Rinaldi were in Cobourg to announce sizeable grants. Rudd announced that multiple new public transit projects have been approved for Cobourg,l Port Hope and Trent Hills. Cobourg will receive $162,000 to purchase Demand Response software, a new paratransit bus and 10 transit shelters. Port Hope is to receive $148,000 for two new shuttle vehicles. Trent Hills will receive $53,750 for a specialized transit vehicle and for Specialized Transportation hardware and software. The federal government is providing 50% of the funding with the remainder coming from the provincial government and the municipalities.

An earlier announcement at Brandneu Foods in Cobourg saw the provincial and federal government each kicking in $50,000 to allow the food processor to fully automate the packaging process with an aim for international sales.

Cobourg Mayor Gil Brocanier thanked the M.P and the M.P.P. for the money they are seeing invested in the local area and Port Hope Mayor commented that the transit money will assist in coordinating traffic between Cobourg and Port Hope. Rinaldi also hinted that GO service may be in the works to move the transit system further east. Rinaldi also commented on the Provincial Government decision to pass legislation soon to reduce electricity bills by 25%.
