RDN doles out grants

The Regional District of Nanaimo has given provisional approval for several grants in aid, totalling $12,822.

In District 69, Forward House Community Society asked for and got $1,242 to buy new, energy-efficient windows for their facility, while Nanoose Bay Catspan had their request of $4,950 denied, pending further information about whether the problem of feral cats is decreasing or increasing.

The North Island Wildlife Recovery Association asked for $3,000 and was granted $2,727 to replace flooring in the public education area. The Oceanside Community Arts Council however had their request for $4,950 denied, as the building they were hoping to upgrade is deemed to be very old and in need of a large amount of work.

The Oceanside Hospice Society asked for $5,000 to purchase new laptop computers and accompanying software and received $2,000 to that end.

The Parksville and District Association for Community Living asked for $2,000 to buy program supplies and they were granted $1,200. The Parksville and District Historical Society was not as fortunate, as their request for $600 to replace kitchen flooring was denied. Staff felt they had enough money to cover the flooring on their own.

Finally, the Qualicum Bay Lions Club asked for and received $5,000 to renovate washrooms in their facility.
