Bezan pleased with infrastructure funding for City of Selkirk

Selkirk, MB – James Bezan, Member of Parliament for Selkirk-Interlake-Eastman, was pleased to attend a federal funding announcement at the Selkirk Council Chambers yesterday. The City of Selkirk received $1.6-million in federal and provincial funding from the Small Communities Fund to design and construct an additional forcemain and lift station. Additionally, Selkirk received $150,000 to purchase three new handi-van transit vehicles.

“I was happy to be on hand to congratulate the City of Selkirk on securing funding from the Small Communities Fund. The new forcemain and lift station will create positive momentum for further development on the western side of Selkirk. This is a great show of what can be done through the collaboration of all levels of government to benefit the entire region.

“It is also promising to see further investment in making Selkirk more accessible for everyone with the funding to purchase three new handi-van transit vehicles. These vehicles are especially important in making sure that our seniors and people with disabilities continue to have the opportunity to be out in the community.

“Both these announcements are a result of the hard work done by the City of Selkirk to secure funding, and I am looking forward to watching the progress.”
