Water Still a Priority

Mayor Ivan Court says the city is doing tremendously well in trying to improve the water quality in the city.
Safe clean drinking water was outlined as the number one priority for common council last year, and Court tells CHSJ News, so far the city has invested 24 million dollars into water projects right now.
He says now it's time for the next step.
Court says looking back on the accomplishments over the past year the city has made major investments in another priority area.
The city has invested money into many recreational projects around the city including the Canada Games Stadium Upgrade, laying new gym flooring at the Carelton Community Centre, and upgrading Rainbow Park.
