SACKVILLE, N.B. – The town will hand over $300,000 for its share of the Regional Service Commission (RSC) 7’s annual budget for the coming year.

Town council authorized the allocations during its monthly meeting on Dec. 9, with approximately $186,000 to go towards local planning services, $110,000 for solid waste services, and $2,800 for cooperative and regional planning within the RSC’s 2014 budget.

Regional Service Commissions were implemented earlier this year throughout the province to bring together the operation of some municipal services under one umbrella – including planning, solid waste, and emergency measures.

Treasurer Michael Beal said the funds were previously provided directly to the local planning commission or the solid waste corporation in the form of annual grants from the town but with a new centralized system, this is a new process. He said the contribution is similar to what was paid last year in grants, with only a slight increase.
