TRURO - A proposed civic centre in Colchester County would cost about $11 million more than originally anticipated.
The multi-million dollar shortfall places the new cost at almost $50 million. The municipality previously signed a memorandum of understanding to fund $6.6 million of the original cost, while the town signed up for $4.4 million. Project organizers want the county and town to double their respective financial commitments.
"It's a great project ... but a tough pill to swallow to go to taxpayers to double our commitment," said County Coun. Tom Taggart.
"I am 100 per cent in favour (and) if taxes go up so be it," Salmon River's Charles MacKinlay, one of about 30 people from the public who attended the meeting, told the Truro Daily News.
