Chester: Exploring Funding Options For 'Our Health Centre'

Chester appears ready to financially support 'Our Health Centre.' The municipality has created a pair of options that would see them provide $300,000 to the collaborative health facility over two years. It would see a $200,000 investment this year and $100,000 next year or $100,000 this year and $200,000 in 2015. Warden Allen Webber says the money is a good starting point.

Officials representing 'Our Health Centre' originally asked the municipality for $1-million last year, but that request was denied. The health facility has raised over $2.25-million and hope to have the project complete late in 2015. Chester council will look at their budget figures this week to see if either option will work.
