Kentville will be donating $500 to the International Red Cross to help with Typhoon Haiyan relief work in the Philippines.
Coun. Eric Bolland, who had made the original motion at the Nov. 12 council advisory meeting, tried to boost Kentville’s contribution at the regular monthly council meeting. Bolland moved an amendment to increase the donation to $1,000, but only he and Coun. Tony Bentley voted in support of the change.
