Lanark County Transportation benefits from provincial gas tax cash

by | Jan 21, 2022 | Local News | 0 comments

Earlier this week MPP Steve Clark announced that this year’s share of the gas tax for Lanark County is a little over $430,000.

Big cities spend the money on things like buses and light rail, but here the money is spent differently.

Lanark Transportation Executive Director Marilyn Bird tells Lake 88 they benefit greatly from it.

Next time you’re filling up, know that you’re helping the organization get people in our communities to medical and vaccination appointments, and even to get necessities such as food.

The gas tax pays for about half the organization’s budget.
