|The City of Prince Rupert is applying for grant funding for
work along the Hays Creek area near the Civic Centre
With the prospect of over 1.5 million dollars in funding available for some COVID related remediation work, Prince Rupert City Council moved forward Monday evening on a quest towards accessing some of the available cash.
The City's Corporate Administrator Ms. Rosa Miller provided for some limited background towards the grant opportunity which would put focus towards restoration of the Hays Creek area.
"Hays Creek is the primary collector stream for the drainage of the north slope of Mount Hays, in the 1950's and 1960s the stream was collected into an artificial channel lined with stone walls as it passes through the Civic Centre and McClymont Park."
As Ms. Miller explained it the grant funding of just over 1.5 million would come from ISIP COVID related program funding, which will cover 100 percent for approved projects.
