PICTOU – The Pictou County SPCA will be getting $3,000 from the Municipality of Pictou County to help fix its sewer problems.
The local animal shelter had requested $6,000 from the municipality but councillors expressed concern during a recent finance meeting that other municipal units should also be chipping in to help with the repair costs.
Councillors acknowledged that although the building is located in Granton, which is rural Pictou County, the shelter provides a valuable service for all municipalities.
“It would be nice to get support from the other municipal units,” said Coun. Randy Palmer.
The finance committee agreed to recommend the $3,000 donation to council and hopes the other five municipal units will come together to top up the additional $3,000 needed for the repairs.
