Quinte West council will be considering grants to community groups and institutions of around half a million dollars
in its budget for this year.
Last night, the Corporate Finance Committee recommended council approve the grants in upcoming budget discussions.
The largest grant is to Trenton Memorial Hospital, at $100,000. Loyalist College and the Kingston General Hospital
Foundation also receive large grants, as does the National Air Force Museum.
The Committee recommends one time grants of $75,000 to the Trenton Golden Hawks to run the Dudley Hewitt Memorial
Cup tournament in May and $10,000 to the Trenton Figure Skating Club to help with its 60th anniversary.
