WHEREAS the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) funding that is tagged to the provincial funding is a flawed system; and
WHEREAS the federal funding for rural municipal bridges that were recommended by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Government Relations to the Government of Canada is at a much lower percentage than all other approved projects; and
WHEREAS the rural municipalities would like clarification as to why the percentages are different.
BE IT RESOLVED all funding and approval criteria for bridges, be it federal, private, or other, be administered solely under the Province of Saskatchewan and SARM and they set the criteria to be met; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that SARM lobby for more funding towards the municipal bridge program.
