Per a long-stand Council policy, $168,000 of the money Langely City receives from the casino is allocated to community grants annually. Council has provided more than $2.6 million in grants since this program launched in 2006.

This year, the City received 46 applications totalling $304,718.62. Council awards $153,938.62 to 37 organizations that serve our community.

This year, Council awarded $34,000 to the Langley Senior Resources Society as they suffered a flood due to a break in a fire sprinkler pipe in January. The water caused extensive damage. The building is on City property, which we lease to the Society for $1. The City also helps support the membership subsidy program.

We presented the Society with a big cheque last night (including one that is cashable) to help with their repairs. Council was enthusiastically supportive of helping.
