During the presentation of the MRC Pontiac’s 2020 budget, the Regional Council of Mayors resolved to allocate a budget of $10,000 for joint promotional activities related to the Ottawa River and to mandate a human resource to work with partners on this issue, under the condition that the County of Renfrew and City of Pembroke match this contribution. According to the Mayor of the City of Pembroke, Michael LeMay, their intentions are good but their 2020 budget will only be adopted in January.

The MRC Pontiac also reiterated the need for collaboration as a way to ’’avoid redundancies and help maximize the impact of promotional efforts.’’ More details on this will be available soon.
