Bruderheim will spend the summer improving handicap access to town buildings.
 
MP Shannon Stubbs from the Alberta Government surprised the town with a cheque for $22,500.
 
"The timing is just unbelievably awesome for that announcement," said Bruderheim's mayor Karl Hauch. "We recently have an intern in the town, a young fellow whose quadriplegic and in a wheel chair and a lot of our town buildings don't have the proper equipment to allow handicap access, so this money will go towards that."
 
The cheque was presented at the Bruderheim mayor supper on Friday (Mar.9).
 
Hauch estimated work will begin this summer.
