Public Meeting RE: The Future Governance of the Town of Parrsboro

The Parrsboro Town Council would like to invite residents and taxpayers to attend an open Public Meeting on Thursday, August 13th, 2015 at the Parrsboro Fire Hall.  The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the possibility of the Town of Parrsboro joining the Municipality of the County of Cumberland, and how this could potentially impact the community of Parrsboro and its residents.  In attendance will be the Parrsboro Town Council, members of Cumberland County Council, and Municipal and Provincial staff.

As many are aware, the former Town of Springhill recently joined Cumberland County.  The Parrsboro Town Council has been observing this transition and evaluating what a similar change could mean for Parrsboro.  Council and staff would like to present some information about what the future may look like by either joining the County or remaining an independent town.  More importantly, the Council would like to hear from you, the residents and taxpayers, regarding your thoughts and opinions about both the recent Springhill merger with the County, and how you feel about a similar potential merger for the Town of Parrsboro.

We invite you to come out, have your opinion and engage in a positive discussion about the future of our area.  If you are unable to attend this meeting, we encourage you to express your thoughts on the matter by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
