The Mayor of Niverville says town council is hopeful they will receive funding for the Community Resource Centre Project in 2019.
Myron Dyck says many of the town’s plans for the future hinge on whether or not the federal and provincial governments fund the CRC.
"We are hopeful regarding the CRC so depending on how that is decided that will have a significant bearing on how 2019 goes. We are going to open the school in 2019 so that is very exciting. We are continuing to work with businesses to see what other things may be coming yet to our main street and business park yet this year."
Dyck says in addition to the work they are doing on projects in Niverville, council is also focused on the less tangible things like building a strong sense of community.
"My goal as mayor has always been that Niverville always retains its community identity and by that, I mean that we would continually understand that people are our greatest resource. What we are trying to do is enable other community groups that are also investing in people whether it be in the service to seniors, our business community, our fair committee, our communities in bloom, all of those that want to invest in our community, what can we do to invest in them."
Dyck says there is still work to do by he is happy to see Niverville residents getting and staying involved in the community. He adds there is a lot to look forward to in 2019.
