Richmond Co.’s warden says there’s some confusion about a grant for the Village of St. Peter’s.
Brian Marchand says they supported a $30, 000 grant for a sidewalk tractor in 2016.
He says the infrastructure grants are 50-cent dollars.
After this week’s county council meeting, Marchand told The Hawk it didn’t appear they spent $60, 000.
“For them to get $30, 000, as the CFO said, they would need to spend $60, 000.” he said. “The problem here is how it all looked- it looked like they only spent $30, 000 because they had a cancelled cheque for $30, 000; in essence, they did spend the $60, 000, they just didn’t spend it all at once.”
Marchand said there’s a two-year limit to acquire those funds.
He said they’re entitled to their money because they have an invoice for over $70, 000.
