NS Utility & Review Board Public Hearing
For a Preliminary Order for the Proposed Amalgamation of the Municipality of the District of West Hants and the Town of Windsor
The Hearing for a Preliminary Order will be held:
Date: Tuesday, June 28, 2016 at 10:00 a.m.
Place: Hants County War Memorial Community Centre, 78 Thomas Street Windsor, Nova Scotia
All persons are entitled to attend the hearing. More specific details can be found by clicking here . As well, more information is available on the NS Utility & Review Board's website under Case No. M07325 at http://uarb.novascotia.ca/fmi/iwp/cgi?-db=UARBv12&-loadframes .
NOTE: At the June 28th hearing, the NS Utility & Review Board will determine which studies need to be conducted. There will be an alloted timeframe in which they are to be concluded so that they can be considered at the hearing that will occur in early 2017. Some common studies that may be requested (as was with the Town of Hantsport) include financial impact studies, infrastructure, etc. These independent studies will provide factual information on the impact to West Hants and Windsor citizens should amalgamation be approved. These studies will help citizens make a more informed decision with respect to amalgamation. Any impact speculation prior to these studies being done is premature (i.e. future tax rates, infrastructure, etc). These studies will prove valuable and beneficial to EVERYONE involved no matter where you live.
