The City of Brandon is going to ask for $274,000 from the Province of Manitoba.


City Council voted unanimously last night to seek the reimbursement from the Province after their application was denied.                                                    


City Councillor Stephen Montague says it would be a big help if the Wheat City could see some of that money back.




Montague says it would help minimize or eliminate any potential tax increase that Brandon citizens may face.
