Tri-city mayors discuss municipal reform at quarterly meeting


The mayors of Fredericton, Moncton and Saint John recently met with Jean-Guy Finn, former Commissioner on the Future of Local Governance, to discuss his report about municipal reform from a decade ago in today’s context.  

The report, called:  “Building Stronger Local Governments and Regions:  An Action Plan for the Future of Local Governance in New Brunswick” was released in November 2008. 

The meeting was hosted at Moncton City Hall on May 3, 2019 by Mayor Dawn Arnold, City of Moncton, and attended by Mayor Mike O’Brien, City of Fredericton and Mayor Don Darling, City of Saint John, as well as senior municipal staff from each municipality. 

Also on the agenda for the day were discussions about public safety arbitration settlements being above the cost of living increases granted to other unions and a discussion in support of the new Tourism Accommodation Levy, as part of municipal and taxation reform in New Brunswick.

About the Tri-city Partnership

The Tri-city partnership recognizes that the three largest New Brunswick cities have similar challenges, similar goals and share a vision for a prosperous New Brunswick.   The partnership is intended to foster a sense of teamwork and cooperation and push forward initiatives that are important to the large urban areas and the Cities of New Brunswick.   The mayors of Fredericton, Moncton, and Saint John signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in September 2017 as formal gesture of alignment and cooperation between the cities.  The mayors meet quarterly.
