N.S. to download more costs to municipalities

The Dexter government is looking to municipalities to help balance the provincial budget, announcing today that they’ll have to cover an estimated $50 million the province had agreed in 2007 to pick up.

The municipalities won’t see any changes in 2011-12 to the memorandum of understanding signed in 2007. The changes to the seven-year agreement start in 2012-13, with municipalities to pick up housing and corrections costs the province was scheduled to pay.
