The Township of Algonquin Highlands plans to ask the province again for funding for road repairs.

The township’s request for funding from the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund to rehabilitate North Shore Road was turned down.

According to a report presented to council, the cost of rehabbing the road would be a total of just over $2 million, with the province covering 90 per cent of that.

Mayor Carol Moffatt says North Shore Road continues to deteriorate.

Moffatt suspects Algonquin Highlands didn’t receive the funding because it operates with a surplus.

Moffatt says the township will ask for 85 per cent of the road work to be funded by the province instead of 90 in hopes the province will give more consideration.
