The Rural Development Department says Lunenburg County is getting $90,000 cover part of the cost of upgrading its financial and information technology systems.
Gary Ramey, the NDP member for Lunenburg West, issued a statement Monday saying the funding reflects the estimated lost tax revenue resulting from the mill closure in June 2012.
Last week, the province committed $500,000 to cover the municipal portion of bills associated with renovating the Queens General Hospital in Liverpool.
That brought the province's total contribution to $3 million.
Meanwhile, the province is moving ahead with plans to create a bioresources centre on the site of the mill.Suggest a correction
