The announcement last Friday concerning the Municipality of the county of Pictou , Town of New Glasgow and Town of Pictou working together to come up with a memorandum of understanding concerning shared services with their towns came as a complete surprise to the Town of Trenton, the mayor stated in a release today.
‚ÄúI was away on business until yesterday and unable to confer with Council until now,‚ÄĚ he stated. ‚ÄúOur Council was very disappointed that we were left out of any discussions that lead to this announcement. We were the first to agree on paying the $25,000 for a Governance Study. We currently have agreements in place with each of the other towns and county that deliver services for Trenton residents.‚ÄĚ
He said Trenton has always been open to moving Pictou County forward in the best interest of its citizens, and will continue to do so.
