Driscoll On Budget And Shale Gas

 Mayor Murray Driscoll concedes it will be a challenge to maintain the town's tax rate in this year's budget which will be unveiled tomorrow night. 

The town will be receiving 147 thousand fewer dollars from the provincial government this year. Common Council has endorsed shale gas development but Driscoll tells CHSJ News the town is in a different position.

Driscoll says he can't take a chance of it with over 6000 wells in the town.

Driscoll says townspeople enjoy some of the best water in the province.
