TRURO - The Town of Truro wants a little more say before it gets involved in helping the Nova Scotia Provincial Exhibition Commission climb out of its $1 million debt.
The commission sent a request to Truro Town Council during its monthly meeting Monday, asking a member of council to sit on a working board designed to come up with suggestions to erase the commission's debt.
The commission would then vote on which of the working board's ideas to pursue.
"There are issues financially and operational that need to be dealt with and I don't believe the town should put itself in the position to go on a working group without having a vote at the table," Coun. Raymond Tynes said.
After some discussion, Tynes agreed to meet with the working group and report back to council on whether it should continue to attach itself to the group.
"If the commission makes the final decision, I just see it as an exercise of maybe trying to use the good name of the town of Truro to leverage funding elsewhere and I'm not going to put our taxpayers in that position," Tynes said. "We just need some more information."
