To better serve residents of the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg and the Towns of Bridgewater and Mahone Bay, a Municipal Joint Services Board has been created through a cost sharing arrangement.
Each participating municipality has appointed members to sit on the Board of Directors who will report to Councils regularly on their progress and to identify future shared service opportunities.
The first municipal shared service to be administered by the Municipal Joint Services Board is the Lunenburg Regional Community Recycling Centre (LRCRC). In accordance with the Inter-Municipal Waste Disposal Agreement, the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg operated and managed the LRCRC. On March 31, 2013, the transfer of operations to the Municipal Joint Services Board occurred with no changes to the operating setup or procedures to the LRCRC.
