Holyrood Mayor Gary Goobie notified council during this week’s public meeting that the Town was in receipt of a petition from cabin owners and residents along the Salmonier Line in regard to an ongoing boundary change feasibility study.
“This petition has also been forwarded to LW Consulting Group, who have been commissioned to undertake this study,” said Goobie. “This petition has been duly noted and entered into the public record.”
Folks who live along Salmonier Line or own cabins there currently pay $200 annually to the Eastern Regional Service Board for garbage collection and $50 to Holyrood for fire protection.
Residents fear that incorporation within Holyrood’s boundary could mean taxes.
The petition was tabled with no discussion.
