A movement to combine 3 local service districts underway

A movement to combine three local service districts in central New Brunswick into a single community with its own local government is well underway.

Files from the CBC reporting the proposed Nashwaak Rural Community would be created by amalgamating the local service districts of Stanley, Estey's Bridge and St. Mary's.

The group held its first meeting on Monday night at the Penniac Rec Centre with about 60 people in attendance.

More meetings are scheduled for January and may be followed by a feasibility study that will determine the fate of the local service districts.  

Public consultations will take place throughout this month.
