An important public meeting is set for tomorrow night, Feb. 23, for residents of George’s Brook and Milton to talk about options for local government.

The communities have operated as a Local Service District for years, but the local committee is wondering whether they should explore the idea of becoming an incorporated town.

A meeting is set for Tuesday night, Feb. 23, at the Community Cultural House in Milton, to provide residents with information on the options available to them.

Craig Pardy, chair of the George’s Brook-Milton Local Service District, says the meeting will also provide residents with an update on the water situation in Milton, including information on the current provincial capital works application for funding.

The town has been on Clarenville’s water supply since their own water source, Lily Pond, dried up last September. The same thing happened in the fall of 2014.

The committee also is exploring seeking permission to go from being a local service district to a municipality.

Pardy says a representative from the municipal affairs department will also be at the meeting.

The public meeting is set for 7 p.m.
