139 Additional MEEP Projects Approved to Move Ahead
$150 Million Program To Benefit Cities, Towns, Villages, RMs And Northern Communities
Today, Government Relations Minister Lori Carr announced the approval of an additional 139 projects totaling just under $14 million of provincial investment under the Municipal Economic Enhancement Program (MEEP).
“So far in June and July, a total of 194 municipal projects and initiatives have been approved for 109 communities,” Carr said. “The total investment so far of $21.37 million under the Municipal Economic Enhancement Program 2020 strengthens communities in two ways: municipalities improve their local infrastructure and capital assets needed to provide services to residents as well as provide projects that can help get residents back to work.”
The $150 million MEEP 2020 is a key component of the Government of Saskatchewan’s $7.5 billion, two-year capital plan to build a strong province and stimulate its economic recovery from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Highlights of some of the recently approved projects include:
- Resort Village of Alice Beach – New Community Well
- RM of Eyebrow No. 193 – Bridge Replacement
- Village of Fillmore – Upgrades to Skating Rink
Each project and its schedule is managed by the municipality receiving funding. All MEEP 2020 funding must be used by March 31, 2022.
