In 2013, the Municipal Joint Services Board (MJSB) was created through a Memorandum of Understanding to better-serve residents of the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg and the towns of Bridgewater and Mahone Bay.
Each partnering municipality has assigned members to sit on the Board. They report to their respective Municipal Councils regularly to provide updates and to identify future shared services opportunties.
The Lunenburg Regional Community Recycling Centre was the first shared service to be administered by the Board.
The second shared service undertaken was Information Technology. In July 2015, the Director of IT Services, in consultation with the MJSB, began working on the delivery of IT services.
Currently, the MJSB is pursuing the provision of Human Resources as a service as well.
The MJSB's Board of Directors includes:
Mayor Don Downe - Municipality of District of Lunenburg
Councillor Lynn Hennigar - Town of Mahone Bay
Mayor Joe Feeney - Town of Mahone Bay
Councillor Errol Knickle - Municipality of District of Lunenburg
Mayor David Walker - Town of Bridgewater
Councillor Andrew Tanner - Town of Bridgewater
Peter Wile - Member at Large
The Board meets on the fourth Wednesday of every month, at 6:30 pm in the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg Council Chambers, 210 Aberdeen Road, Bridgewater, NS.
The public is cordially invited to attend all meetings.
