The Lavigne Community Centre is getting a financial boost from the federal government's Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund to replace its roof, according to a news release.

A total of $19,224 is being issued through the fund to help with the upgrades.

“We are very pleased to see that the Government of Canada recognizes the importance of investing in local infrastructure to secure the long-term prosperity of the municipality,” said Mayor Joanne Savage, Municipality of West Nipissing.

“Today’s announcement will ensure the Lavigne Community Centre is more cost efficient to operate and a safe place for residents and their families to use.”

The fund supports, on a cost-shared basis, repairs and improvements to existing community infrastructure that is accessible for use by the public.

Recipients of the Fund may receive contributions of up to $1 million and must leverage a minimum of 50 per cent of funding from other sources.

“Families and communities across the province will benefit from these projects, which will also boost economic activity, as well as leave a lasting legacy of modernized community facilities for future generations,” said Minister for FedNor Tony Clement.
