"Solving Saint John Problems The Saint John Way"

It's time to give the city of Saint John the tools it needs to solve its problems, instead of having to run to the provincial government.

That's the sentiment being expressed at common council as legislative changes are discussed that would, potentially, give the city more freedom over bylaw enforcement, taxation, and more. 

Mayor Mel Norton tells CHSJ News the reforms would let local government respond to citizens better--in his words, "let Saint John solve Saint John problems the Saint John way."

The paper on the reforms is now going to be sent to the NB Cities Association and council will be kept posted on any updates.
