Sask. rural municipalities welcome provincial revenue-sharing grants

Saskatchewan rural municipalities welcome this year’s revenue sharing grant from the provincial government.

Municipalities are receiving 275 million dollars, with an estimated 77 million dollars going to the province’s 299 rural municipalities.

The remainder goes to urban areas.

SARM president Ray Orb says the funds are important for rural areas for such projects as roads and bridges.

The provincial revenue sharing grant is based on three quarters of one point of the provincial sales tax revenue collected from two years prior.
