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.
The MJSB's Board of Directors includes:
Chair: Mayor David DEVENNE, Town of Mahone Bay
Vice-Chair: Deputy Mayor Karl NAUSS, Town of Mahone Bay
Councillor Bill MCINNIS, Town of Bridgewater
Councillor Cathy MOORE, Municipality of the District of Lunenburg
Mayor David MITCHELL, Town of Bridgewater
Deputy Mayor Andrew TANNER, Town of Bridgewater
Mayor Carolyn BOLIVAR-GETSON, Municipality of the District of Lunenburg
Councillor Erroll KNICKLE, Municipality of the District of Lunenburg
Councillor John BAIN, Town of Mahone Bay
The Board meets on the 4th 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.
