Blame game

The blame game continues.

The provincial government has been suggesting big increases in tax bills for many homeowners are partly the fault of municipalities because they set the tax rate.

The municipalities are pointing right back at the government saying they won’t be blamed for double digit assessment increases and mistakes made on 2,400 of those assessments. Raymond Murphy, head of the Union of Municipalities of New Brunswick, told Brunswick News it’s Service New Brunswick that screwed up…and they need to admit it and move on.
