BERWICK – North Stormont Township received a significant financial boost today in the form of a contribution of $614,000 from Green for Life (GFL) Environmental Inc. as part of a long-standing host agreement with the municipality.
Greg van Loenen, environmental compliance officer with GFL presented the cheque to Mayor Jim Wert at the township office, July 13. The monies were provided via the GFL Host Community Fund. The township of North Stormont recognizes GFL as a valued community partner. This funding stream is a much needed monetary infusion to the municipality considering the continued annual decreases in provincial contribution through the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund.
