NOTICE

MUNICIPALITY OF THE DISTRICT OF BARRINGTON

SECOND READING DEED TRANSFER TAX BY-LAW

Barrington Municipal Council is considering the adoption of a Deed Transfer Tax By-law. A Deed Transfer Tax is a tax that is levied on the transfer of real property which is payable at the time of conveyance of the title. The Deed Transfer Tax is paid at the Registry of Deeds Office when the property is being registered. The Registry of Deeds collects the tax and then forwards it to the Municipality where the property is located. The Municipality is proposing that a Deed Transfer Tax of 1.5% be charged on the value of property transferred.

A copy of the proposed by-law may be inspected at the Municipal Office, in the Administrative Centre, located at 2447, Highway #3, Barrington, N.S., between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Any representation by interested persons concerning the adoption of the proposed Deed Transfer Tax By-law may be made at the October 2, 2017 Council meeting which will be held in the Council Chambers, in the Administrative Centre, in Barrington, N.S. The adoption of this by-law will be discussed at 7:00 p.m.

Call for Artists - Buoys of Barrington

Call for Artists

September 14, 2017 

The Municipality of Barrington is embarking on another exciting project as part of their Paint the Town Red, Canada 150 Celebrations. This part of our Paint the Town Red project will feature 66 unique lobster buoys. Each lobster buoy will be custom designed and hand painted by local residents. This public art project will play a significant role to visitors and residents for a unique and memorable experience, as we also add to our Lobster Capital of Canada profile.

Artists can be young or old, budding artists, or seasoned artists, you can even team up to paint one. The municipality will supply the buoy to each artist, as well as the 8 colours of paint. Artists may choose to use their own paint supplies if they wish.

All buoys must have the artist’s full name printed on the bottom of the buoy and be dated. Once finished, the buoy must be returned to the Municipal Office by November 3rd, 2017.  

The Municipality will put a finishing coat on all submitted buoys.  

You are open to any design for your buoy, but do keep in mind the Canada 150 theme, our history, heritage and culture of the area, as interpreted by you, the artist. Please be mindful that all buoys will be a part of a public art display, so all artwork must be suitable for viewing by all ages.  

Buoys will be provided on a first come, first serve basis. Artists must be a resident of the Municipality of Barrington or Town of Clark’s Harbour to participate.
