The Columbia Basin Trust has announced a big grant towards the proposed library/museum in Trail.
It will dedicate $500,000 towards the ambitious Riverfront Centre which would combine both facilities.
The library and museum are seeking grants and fund raising in an effort to bring down the estimated $6.9 million cost of the new building on the old Eagle’s site.
Trail residents will vote in a referendum November 15th to decide if they want to borrow big money to finance the project.
The average homeowner would pay a maximum of $81 in extra taxes if the project is approved.
