Ottawa is pumping some money into two infrastructure projects in the county.

Northumberland-Peterborough South M.P. Kim Rudd made the announcing alongside Haliburton, Kawartha Lakes, Brock M.P. Jamie Schmale at the county offices.

Haliburton County will get $100,000 towards the repair of the Junction Bridge on the Haliburton Rail Trail, while Highlands East is getting almost $24,000 towards upgrading the Wilberforce Curling Club.

Schamle says he appreciates the funding since rural communities don’t have the tax base larger cities do.

Schmale thanked the government for the funding.

Rudd, a liberal M.P., says small investments can go a long way.

The money comes from the government’s Canada 150 Community Infrastructure program.
