Mandate Of Fundy Regional Services Commission Is Limited

Mayor Mel Norton sees greater regionalisation as a way to save money and turn the local economy around but will he be able to persuade the other members of the Fundy Regional Services Commission to go along with that. 

Norton wants to see data on what, if any money, can be saved from greater regionalisation.

Grand Bay-Westfield Mayor Grace Losier who chairs the Commission points out its mandate is limited to solid waste collection along with building and planning services for the local service districts.

She says beyond that, it's collaboration but does expect recreation to be talked about at the Commission. Losier failed to persuade people in the local service districts around Grand Bay-Westfield to help pay for the upkeep of the River Valley Community Centre.
