Frustration Over Regional Service Commission

Is the Fundy Regional Service Commission just spinning its wheels with a lot of talk but no action? 

Grand Bay-Westfield Mayor Grace Losier, who chairs the Commission, tells CHSJ News the members who make up the Commission just can't keep on holding meetings every month with no change happening because outcomes are needed.

Losier says a recreation study for the region is needed and should have been done earlier.

Mayor Mel Norton says funding of the Commission next year by the city is not up to him but will be made by Common Council on the basis of whether Saint John is getting value for its dollars which is the new direction for all city spending.
