EDMONTON — The money has begun to flow to Alberta’s municipalities for infrastructure projects.
Municipal Affairs Minister Deron Bilous says $880 million will be dispatched this year to communities under the Municipal Sustainability Initiative.
That’s about $25 million more than had been proposed in the budget put forward by the Progressive Conservatives this spring.
That budget was never passed as the Tories were defeated in the May 5 election.
Bilous says the new NDP government remains committed to stable funding for municipalities.
The NDP plans to bring in a new budget in October.
