Municipalities Fear Other "Springhills"

Officials with the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities have met with those for the province. They're all concerned about the Town of Springhill which has applied to lose its town status and join the surrounding municipality. District of Lunenburg Mayor Don Downe says the situation in Springhill and the possibility of several other towns having to do the same over money issues is disturbing.

The mayor says all municipalities including HRM and the Cape Breton Region are now talking seriously about working more closely together including a greater partnership with the provincial level.
