Phelps Township Nipissing Temiskaming  District Ontaario P0H2A0


Local Service Board - Phelps Township
Redbridge, Ontario

THE LOCAL SERVICE BOARD (LSB) of Redbridge is a volunteer organization that has authority under the Northern Service Board Act to deliver approved services to residents. Local Service Boards are set up in rural areas where there is no municipal structure in place to deliver services such as fore protection or recreation services.

Each LSB is unique in the services it offers its residents. The LSB of Redbridge has been approved by the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources & Forestry to provide the services of fire protection, public library service, and emergency communications. Our board was established in the early 1980's.

Board members are elected at a public meeting in August or September for a one-year term. The function of the LSB is largely to provide administrative oversight to the fire hall, library, and recreation center. We also manage the snow plough contracts, and insurance coverage for these services. Additionally, one of our major responsibilities is to secure the necessary funding to operate these services from year to year. We have two funding sources - the first being an annual operating grant rom the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources & Forestry and the second is from the Ministry of Finance who collects the levy/fee charged to each property owner identified by the LSB in its annual submission.

This levy/fee will appear on your Combined Tax Bill issued in March each year. The funding we receive can only be used to support the operation of the fire hall, library, and recreation center and the administrative costs of the LSB associated with these services. Any other expenditures considered ineligible by the Ministry.
