Community Grant Program
Council endorsed the eligibility checklist and ranking criteria and weighting forms for the new Community Grant Program. Having pre-determined eligibility and evaluation criteria for applicants, review committee and staff to follow provides Council with the best possible input as they prepare to award grant funds.
Hinton Grant Funding Advisory Committee
As a second step, Council formally established the Hinton Grant Funding Advisory Committee. The committee will review, rank and provide recommendations to Council on applications received under the Community Grant Program. The committee will be comprised of 5 members: 1 from the Hinton Municipal Library Board, 1 member from the Hinton Policing Committee and 3 members from the Community Engagement & Accountability Committee.
Utility and Waste Management Rates
Council passed the new rates for water, sewer and waste management. During the budget process, Council had approved an increase to utilities by 3%. The new rates will come into effect May 1, 2015.
