Town Hands Over Housing Data

The town of Fort Frances is providing a consulting firm working with New Gold with some important community information.

The company is working on a housing strategy for New Gold in advance of the company opening its mine north of Barwick.

Mayor Roy Avis says the data contains available properties, housing lots and the infrastructure connecting to those areas.

Avis says the town's waving the nearly $5-thousand fee for the information as a good will jester, hoping there will be benefits as a result.
