In July, 2017 HRM recommended an adjustment to the LWF Area Rate without consultation with the community. With less than 24 hours notice our communities created a tremendous response to request that HRM delay the motion until community consultation had been undertaken.

The motion was not delayed and HRM created a new level of oversight unique to our community’s area rate.

Please find below the official response made before the motion.
