Why would New Brunswickers want to consider becoming a Rural Community?



Why would New Brunswickers want to consider becoming a Rural Community?

There are several reasons why New Brunswickers may want to consider becoming a Rural Community. A Rural Community:
·        puts community decision making back in to the hands of community members so that communities can take charge of their own destiny.
·        allows residents to be involved in the long-term viability of their community.
·        gives community members the opportunity to elect local representatives through a formal election process.
·        ensures that the provision of local services is in keeping with the community’s needs, wants, and ability to pay.
·        allows communities to have decision-making authority for the sharing of services with other communities.

·        allows communities to have dedicated access to Gas Tax Funding.
