It’s Day Two of Belleville’s budget deliberations.
City Council still has to make some tough decisions including a request from Loyalist College of a million dollars over a number of years toward its equipment fundraising campaign.
Loyalist Board Chair Stewart Wright told council yesterday the $16 million Skills and Technology Centre on campus serves the trade and manufacturing sector in the Quinte Region.
His words were backed up by officials from the Quinte Manufacturing Association, Bioniche, and Kelloggs who apeared before council as well.
The college hopes to raise $6 million toward high-tech equipment for the centre.
