Municipal Affairs Minister Mark Furey says he is working with municipalities to finalize the review process, which was recommended in a draft report released last fall.
The Mulgrave Mayor is not surprised that his community is one of a few not meeting enough benchmarks to be considered financially viable. The Municipal Affairs Department says the index indicates Westville, Clark’s Harbour and Mulgrave have failed a test that could result in an automatic review of their financial viability. Lorne Mac Donald says the municipal unit knew this was coming and they want the public to play a role in deciding the future governance of Mulgrave. The town is considering items like being absorbed by the county, sharing services or staying with the status quo.
