A Quinte West councillor has expressed concern about the future of the Komputers for Kids program in his city.
Councillor Terry Cassidy told the Hastings-Quinte Joint Social Services committee this would be the loss of an important service for children.
Komputers for Kids provides home computers for low income families with school-aged children.
Administrator Jim Pine told the committee money will become tight because the Ontario Child Benefit funding is decreasing.
The committee called for a staff report on just how the Komputers for Kids group could raise extra money on its own.
