New Brunswick municipalities are all unique in how they spend their taxpayers’ money. Some communities that rely heavily on large industrial employers require more money to be spent on fire and emergency services. Meanwhile, other councils in municipalities that are growing are forced to spend new money on highway infrastructure or recreation costs to meet the needs of their citizens.
