The Compass - - MUNICIPAL -

An ar­ti­cle that ap­peared on Page A1 of the Jan. 14 print edi­tion of The Com­pass head­lined “Heart’s Con­tent coun­cil­lors to re­ceive re­mu­ner­a­tion” in­cluded an er­ror. The de­ter­mi­na­tion of re­mu­ner­a­tion for the town of Heart’s Con­tent will be cal­cu­lated with a for­mula of four per cent of to­tal fixed rev­enue of the fis­cal year to a max of $15,000, not the to­tal bud­get as was ex­plained in the ar­ti­cle. Fixed rev­enue in­cludes rev­enue raised from mu­nic­i­pal taxes, mu­nic­i­pal op­er­at­ing grants, grants in lieu and other as­sured rev­enues other than sub­si­dies paid by the prov­ince to a coun­cil. The Com­pass has since learned coun­cil­lors will only be el­i­gi­ble for re­mu­ner­a­tion if they at­tend more than half the pub­lic meet­ings per quar­ter.
