The Standard Freeholder is reporting on an agreement between the CBSA and the City. L I N K
“City council is expected to enter into an agreement with the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) tonight which will see the municipality reimbursed for expenses incurred since the facility was opened July 13, as well as any future ones.
“I think with this agreement anything (CBSA) asks us to do, we’re going to be fully compensated for financially,” said Coun. Andre Rivette. “This would include any past work done by city employees or future requests.”
Grant added that the proposed agreement doesn’t seem to have any time lines, however, council will be encouraging the CBSA and the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne to reach a settlement.
“Once the weather gets bad, even from safety perspective of lineups on the bridge, we need to see an end to this quickly.”
