Councillors agreed to fund additional road paving in the hamlet of Suffield to the tune of $1.3 million. The majority of this cost will be paid for out of the existing MSI grant funding for the hamlet’s water and sewer lines upgrades, which came in about $900,000 under budget. Councillors voted unanimously to transfer the additional funds on top of this surplus from the county’s Accelerated Rehabilitation (reserve) Fund. Since crews were paving in Suffield anyway where the new lines went in, the additional streets were offered at a lower rate by the contractor.
