“As the Mayor of the Township of North Dundas, I want to express thanks to both levels of government on behalf of the rest of Council, as well as the residents of North Dundas and especially those living in and around Hallville. The financial support provided by the Federal and Provincial government will allow this planned for and eagerly awaited Hallville Community Park project to break ground in the near future. My thanks to Ms. Meerburg and her staff for preparing the grant submission. Excellent work. Thanks to MPP McDonell for also being a champion of this project. This is an exciting day and once again, thank you to all for supporting this project,” said Mayor Tony Fraser.
