Perth-Andover Mayor Frustrated by Flood Mitigation Report

Announcement expected this week by MLA Wes McLean


Story by Brad Perry

A frustrated mayor and council in Perth-Andover say relocation is what needs to be done in the community.

But according to council members, it's unlikely that option will be mentioned in an announcement by Victoria-Tobique MLA Wes McLean later this week.

It was a small turnout to the meeting Monday night, September 10, to discuss the issue, but all agreed that something needs to be done and it needs to be done now.

Councillors say they will attempt to contact McLean immediately to demand relocation - something they've wanted from the start.

Mayor Terry Ritchie, who abruptly left the meeting after the conversation on the issue, was not available for comment at the time.
