Quispamsis Mayor Frustrated With Grant Reduction

Another year, another cutback in provincial grant money for the town of Quispamsis. 

Like last year, the town is seeing a reduction is their Community Funding and Equalization Grant to the tune of more than $147,000 this time around and Mayor Murray Driscoll says that is frustrating.

He says the residents are the only source of revenue for Quispamsis, and the town is mindful of how much money they have to shell out. Driscoll says the reduction means councillors will have to sharpen their pencils and figure out how do the best with the tax dollars they have.

The town getting more than $425,000 in funding this year. No word yet on what, if any, impact this will have on taxes.
