BIBLE HILL - Flooding and active transportation are only a couple of important issues officials with the Village of Bible Hill want to discuss with Truro town councillors.
Bible Hill commissioners will meet with Town of Truro officials at the end of the month to discuss a number of issues that concern both governments. The gathering is part of an annual get-together between the two to help facilitate potential projects.
Village clerk Bob Christianson said flooding issues will most likely be a priority discussion.
"I like the permanent barricades the town has on Park Street. I'd like to have them on Farnham Road," said Christianson.
"I've had people ask why we don't have them," added deputy chairwoman Donna VanKroonenburg.
Other issues the village would be interested in brainstorming with the town include active transportation, recreation programs and how to address the Nova Scotia Provincial Exhibition commission's severe financial deficit.
"We partner with the town and Colchester County to work together for the betterment" of the exhibition commission, said chairman Tom Burke.
Christianson said there have been many examples of the town and village working together in the recent past to benefit residents, including the dog park in Truro, the Pony Clark Memorial outdoor rink in Bible Hill and extending the town's water system into the village.
Commissioners said they are open to having Bible Hill residents approach them with any concerns or ideas they would like shared during the joint village and town meeting.
