PARRY SOUND-MUSKOKA — Does anyone think that Muskoka Lakes Township suffers from limited property assessments?

Or any of the other towns and townships and District of Muskoka, for that matter.

Well, it seems MPP Norman Miller and his Conservative government at Queen’s Park do.

Miller, in another of his early election year missives today, says that 26 municipalities in Parry Sound-Muskoka will receive more than $25 million in funding from the province to deliver services to their residents.

He says in a release that with the province’s main general assistance grant to municipalities Ontario announces its 2022 funding allocations under the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund (OMPF).

The $500 million in funding was previously announced two months ago at the Association of Municipalities of Ontario’s annual conference in August.

“Our government recognizes the importance of the OMPF to rural and northern communities across the province,” said the veteran MPP. “I am pleased that municipalities across Parry Sound-Muskoka will continue to benefit from this important provincial program.”

The OMPF supports 389 municipalities, primarily rural and northern municipalities that have limited property assessments across the province. The funding provided through the program is unconditional and can be used to support the local priorities and specific needs of each community.
