Peace River Regional District directors approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Village of Pouce Coupe at their Sept 9 board meeting.
The five year agreement will see with the PRRD provide $1,500 annually to assist with the operating costs of the Riverview Cemetery, located outside the Pouce Coupe boundary on Briar Ridge Road.
The money will come from Electoral Area D's Cemetery Grants-in-aid fund.
It’s not the first time the regional district has helped the area with cemetery funding, $24,500 has been contributed to the village over the past 14 years through Electoral Area D.
