Chaleur Regional Service Commission adopts policy for community donations


The Chaleur Regional Service Commission is now able to donate to community groups.

The commission has approved a new policy that sets out what types of groups can quality and the criteria they have to meet.

A group had requested a donation last year, however the commission had no policy on how to proceed or money in the budget.

President Joe Noel tells the Northern Light that the commission plans to earmark $10,000 in the 2020 budget for community donations.
