United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR) council is going to take a bit longer before deciding on providing financial support to the redevelopment project at the Centre d’acceuil Roger-Séguin in Clarence Creek.

“I need more details on financial aid for the project and its viability,” UCPR Treasurer Valérie Parisien told the mayors when they met on April 28.

“We have important financial obligations to rehabilitate our own infrastructure and we’ve not been able to meet those obligations within our plan,” she added.

UCPR council is eager to decide on financial support for the not-for-profit long-term care facility.  The counties have aided the facility in the past as a way of balancing support to long-term care in the western area of the UCPR with the Prescott and Russell Residence, which is located in the eastern area in Hawkesbury.

Clarence-Rockland Mayor Guy Desjardins and Russell Township Mayor Pierre Leroux each asked when a decision could be made and Parisien was confident that she would have more details from Centre d’acceuil Roger-Séguin management by the regular meeting of UCPR council scheduled for May 26.
