Today at the New Maryland Centre, Matt DeCourcey, Member of Parliament for Fredericton, on behalf of the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities; the Honourable Stephen Horsman, New Brunswick Deputy Premier and Minister of Families and Children; Her Worship Judy E. Wilson-Shee, Mayor of New Maryland; and Shelley Sabattis, Chief of Oromocto First Nation, announced over $1.1 million in funding for two new infrastructure projects that will benefit the people living in New Maryland and Oromocto First Nation.

In New Maryland, the funding will be used to extend the watermain and storm sewer as well as rehabilitate the existing sanitary sewer on Daniel Drive. The project also involves resurfacing the roadway and installing new curbs and sidewalks. The upgrades will ensure residents continue to have access to high quality drinking water and an efficient, reliable sewer system.

The governments of Canada and New Brunswick are each contributing $215,175 through the Small Communities Fund for the Daniel Drive improvement project in New Maryland. The Village will provide $215,177 bringing the total municipal-provincial-federal investment to $645,527.
