Kindersley town council has decided to temporarily suspend the Kindersley Community Initiatives Program (KCIP) for this year.

The resolution was made at their last regular meeting of March this past Monday evening.

The town of Kindersley receives funding from Saskatchewan Lotteries for the KCIP.

This year approximately $45,000 of this funding will go towards the Wall of Champions in the West Central Events Centre and the town’s Canada Day fireworks. 

All remaining funding will go toward the Kindersley Aquatic Centre.
