UNSM Board of Director Outcomes from February 6 Meeting

  •  Due to weather, the Board held a teleconference call to discuss time sensitive matters, and will be meeting February 26 in Halifax.   Matters discussed during the call included the Ministers Roundtable meeting held January 29, 2015; the points UNSM should make to the Minister of Finance regarding the upcoming provincial budget;  and a potential new partnership agreement with the province.  
  • As well the NSP consultations on vegetation management were discussed. Since then, NSP has released its proposal to the UARB, which will be discussed during formal meetings in April.  UNSM will be an intervener in this hearing, and welcomes any feedback from municipalities on the proposal going to the UARB.  Comments should be sent to Lyle Goldberg, UNSM Policy Analyst ()
