Strathcona County has to decide what to do with a large gift.
Earlier this month, the provincial and federal government announced $15.4 million would be heading to Strathcona County for transit upgrades.
"It coincides perfectly with our current transit master planning that we're doing. We're reaching out to the community and seeking public input on what the future of transit should look like in Strathcona County," said mayor Rod Frank.
The county will have a maximum of 10 years to spend the funding. The government also requires it be used on capital spending and hard costs, such as purchasing buses, transit centres and expanding parking lots.
"We're looking at ways we can innovate," added Frank. "We want to get the best value for our transit dollar because it is an expensive service."
Strathcona County’s Transit Master Plan should be completed this year. For more details click here.
