Puslinch Township is not going to receive as much money next year through the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund (OMPF).
Puslinch’s 2017 OMPF allocation is $370,200, which is the equivalent of 10% of the township’s municipal property tax revenue.
“That amount is down by $35,200 from what we received in 2016,” said Mayor Dennis Lever on Nov. 23.
A release to the township stated that while the province will maintain 2017 OMPF funding at $505 million, which will provide support to 388 municipalities across the province, it is adjusting allocations made to individual municipalities.
Lever noted there are a couple of municipalities within Wellington County that have seen increases to their OMPF allocations: Minto, Wellington North, Guelph-Eramosa and Mapleton.
