Removal of Administrative Fee on Funding Grants
Whereas the Government of Canada offers funding to municipalities for various programs administered through the Government of Saskatchewan; and,
Whereas municipalities apply for funding to assist in costs for infrastructure and construction projects within the municipality; and
Whereas an administrative fee is charged by the Government of Saskatchewan to administer the funding programs on behalf of the Government of Canada, which includes completing an assessment of the applications; and
Whereas Provincial Sales Tax of 6% is charged to municipalities for supplies, services and projects, which cost is in addition to the administration fee; and
Therefore be it resolved that SUMA advocate the Government of Saskatchewan to eliminate the administrative fee they charge for administering Government of Canada funding programs for all municipalities.
