The Association of Manitoba Municipalities will go to bat for the RM of Ritchot.


Mayor Bob Stefaniuk presented a resolution yesterday at the 8th annual municipal convention in Winnipeg.

It asked the association to lobby the province for a better compensation package for damages resulting from artificial flooding caused by expansion of the red river floodway.

St.Clements Reeve Steve Strang encouraged delegates to support the motion.

He says this is an important issue for communities around the floodway.

In the end, a large majority of delegates voted in favour of the resolution.
