A request for funding by Hastings Highlands to the provincial government has been declined.

The township says they would use money would be used to fix Highway 62 from Maynooth to Maple Leaf.

CAO Pat Pilgrim says the government responded as to why they declined the proposal.

Pilgrim says there is deterioration to the surface of the road.

She says the township will review what it can do about the road’s condition as part of the 2016 budget.
