Minden Hills’ Reeve is looking for answers on how to tackle a province wide infrastructure deficit.

Brent Devolin reminded the public at a recent meeting the Ontario government, and all party leaders, shot down a one per cent increase to the H.S.T. to cut into the nearly $5 billion shortfall.

Devolin says the request was shot down this summer and adds none of the party leaders had a solution.

Devolin also says with a provincial election coming up next June, lower-tier politicians will want concrete answers on how the deficit on roads on bridges will be addressed.

Last week, Minden learned its roads department is on target for an approximately $260,000 deficit.
