Town council will receive a financial request from Safe Communities Rainy River District for $.50 per capita funding for its 2010-11 programs at tonight’s council meeting.
This rate is the same the group asked for—and received—last year.

This money would be used to “help our communities become safer to live, learn, work, and play,” Safe Communities chair Peggy Loyie wrote in a letter to council.
“The group looks forward to the challenges of our future continuation of existing programs, and the implementation of new and exciting programs for the district,” she noted.
In addition to the programs listed in its annual report, Loyie said the group always is looking for new funding opportunities that arise in hopes that one of their community partners will be able to access it and make a successful program for the district.
“We strongly feel acquiring extra dollars for our community effort provides additional resources, programs, and sustainability to our safety efforts,” she added.
The group’s website—www.safetycoalition.ca—continues to market programs it is involved in, as well as partners and links to various organizations throughout the region which provide safety-related activities and promotion.
