Free Press Community Review: East
Funding for community projects approved3 minute read Friday, May. 26, 2023
The East Kildonan-Transcona community committee met on May 23, though Coun. Jason Schreyer (Elmwood-East Kildonan) was absent, leading to a number of items being held over until June.
A $900 per capita grant was approved for Valley Gardens Community Centre’s family fun day on June 24, with funds split evenly between the three wards, along with a $2,000 per capita grant from the Elmwood-East Kildonan ward to help with costs for Happy Days on Henderson, which is to be held on June 10.
In addition, the committee approved its semi-annual summary of delegated authority to award per capita, land dedication, and community incentive grants outside of community committee meetings between July 1 and December 31, 2022, which included $250,000 from Transcona’s land dedication reserve for Buhler Recreation Park improvements and a $99,438 community incentive grant from North Kildonan’s allocation for community enhancements at John Pritchard School, among others.
Coun. Russ Wyatt (Transcona) made a motion to eliminate the delegation of authority over such items, preferring to deal with them at committee meetings in the future.
