Council took a small step in deciding whether to further fund the Demonstration Farm.

Kapuskasing Councillors made their way to the farm early Wednesday morning in order to receive a walk through from Andrew Gordanier, who runs the farm.

Chair of Protective Services Martin Dinnissen says going on-site Wednesday helped to answer a few of council’s concerns regarding the $180,000 request for funding.

Dinnissen says that the town’s lack of funds has put a real restraint on council’s ability to support local initiatives.

Dinnissen says at the current time they have granted $60,000 in funding to the farm for a new fence.

He says due to their financial troubles, council will take their time following their visit with Gordanier to discuss the remaining requested funds.
