Hard on the heels of a noisy demonstration at the Legislature on Thursday -- there is a special meeting of Gagetown council Monday evening to deal with ways to save the Gagetown ferry.
Councilor Bob McDowell tells CHSJ News they are going to look at all options available -- although 30-days doesn't give them a reasonable length of time to come up with solid recommendations.
Transportation Minister Denis Landry has given the Gagetown and Belleisle ferries a 30-day extension before shutting down the services permanently as a cost saving measure.
Monday's special council meeting is being held at the village rec center beginning at 7.
