The City of Moncton will draw from its capital reserve fund to cover the remaining $4.2 million to pay for the downtown events centre plaza. According to the Times And Transcript, Council approved the funding at Monday’s council meeting. However, Coun. Paul Pellerin voted against the motion saying taxpayers should know that in addition to the $4.2 million, another $2.54 million has also been transferred from another dedicated reserve for “other costs” associated with the centre. Pellerin objects to the decision to separate plaza funding from events centre funding, saying they are all part of the same project.

A Moncton developer is proposing a new West End school be built on his property next to Centennial Park. Romeo Goguen owns land on the north edge of the park and apparently thinks it would be a great spot for the new school that will replace Hillcrest and Bessborough. Not everyone thinks so…associates of the developer recently met with parents for the schools and while Hillcrest parents seemed to like the idea Bessborough parents want the new school built on the current Bessborough property.

The Francophone South School district needs teachers…and so yesterday it launched a new campaign to get them. District Superintendent Monique Boudreau tells the Times & Transcript that there’s a mistaken impression that there aren’t any teaching jobs around here…and that keeps students from going into education programs when they graduate. The new campaign is using social media & classroom presentations to grade 11& 12 students to help get more students into the education field…and to possibly stay here in Southeast NB to teach when they graduate.
That’s a happy birthday!
