Clark and Staff Meeting With Chuck Porter
Mayor Cecil Clarke and senior municipal staff are scheduled to meet with Municipal Affairs Minster Chuck Porter today in Halifax.
The meeting comes after Regional Council held a mock cost-cutting exercise yesterday.
The exercise revealed a ten per cent cut in the operating budget would mean significant service reductions and job losses.
It was in response to a viability study paid for by the province that shows the municipality will continue to struggle financially unless significant changes are brought about.
Councillors accused the provincial government of underfunding the municipality at yesterday’s meeting.
