Description: Southside Volunteer Fire Department (SVFDS) is a registered Society operating since 1983 in the Southside area. The fire hall does not currently have a water supply. Water is hauled to the hall location from Francois Lake. In 2005, NKDF assisted SVFDS to install a 5000 gallon underground water tank at the Southside Health & Wellness Centre. This application is for funding assistance to install a 1500' water line from Francois Lake to the fire hall to create a year round supply of water to that location. This project is funded in partnership by NKDF, Southside Volunteer Fire Department Society, and Hamp Construction.

Well, this success story throws back a little bit. We started planning for the expansion at the Burns Lake Public Library in the early 2000's. It was an ambitious project - double the size of the library!! The board...
