Cramahe Township Council found out on October 20 that the provincial gas tax will help with the bills but it won't pay all of them.
The Treasurer's Report from Mora Chatterson stated that the township was eligible for a tax rebate for specialized transit. Last year the township agreed to support a transit van to pick up residents and take them to Cobourg. The township chipped in $9,000.
Councillor Pat Westrope noted that the $3,000 rebate won't meet the township's commitment.
Alnwick/Haldimand also supports the van which is part of a NOrthumberland Community Care transportation initiative to provide service to outlying areas.
Residents interested in the van transit service from Cramahe to Cobourg can contact Colborne Community Care at 905 355-2989.
