Another Nova Scotia Town Heading For Dissolution

Another Nova Scotia community is applying to be dissolved as a town. Financial pressures have forced Bridgetown in the Annapolis Valley to approach the province's Utility and Review Board. Its the third town in the province to do so in the past couple of years and for the same reasons. The President of the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities David Corkum says a change is needed in the way everyone does business.

Corkum predicts many municipalities may be forced to go that route if they want to survive. He says its becoming too costly for communities. Other towns forced to divest themselves of their town status include Springhill and Canso.
