At the Jan 15th Madawaska Valley Council meeting, the subject of unpaid artists was raised. The artists’ work was sold from The Railway Station. It now appears that MV Township is waiting for invoices from them before issuing payment for the sale proceeds (after commission).
Councillor Maika, referring to an entry in the accounts, wanted to know if there were any more payments to be made. Gwen Dombroski, Acting Deputy Clerk, said that she had a list of outstanding payments but she wanted to speak to the artists first as the Township needs to match an invoice against the payment. Dombroski said:
“So if there are any artists out there who still want payment, they need to send us an invoice.”
