Good news for Ottawa

Those of us in the genealogy community in Ottawa can celebrate as City Council Committee of the Whole voted for a budget which rejected the staff recommended cuts to culture, reinstated the entire amount, and included the full planned increments to the museums, arts and festivals plans. This includes funding for the City Archives which houses the libraries of local genealogical and family history societies.

The fate of about $1M in capital funding is still to be decided, but the votes seems to be there to approve it and to confirm the full culture package when Council votes on the total budget package.
