As many of you know, the provincial government is currently engaged in a Municipal Reform exercise to, hopefully, address some of the many challenges faced by local governments – financial, social, environmental and structural.  This is an incredibly important exercise for all New Brunswick citizens, including residents of New Maryland.  Council has submitted comments to the Green Paper that was drafted by the Local Governance Reform Team and we encourage our residents to review our letter on the Village’s website at  The letter clearly identifies Council’s concerns and perspectives regarding Municipal Reform.  If you have any questions regarding the provincial government’s recommendations, please review the Green Paper at  You can also email comments directly to the Local Governance Reform Team at
