DSSAB settles on apportionment formula

After four months of deliberating and a second round of voting, the Rainy River District Social Services Administration Board (DSSAB) finally has settled on an apportionment formula.

DSSAB members spent hours discussing the formula which determines how much each municipality will be levied by DSSAB, eventually choosing the second of three options.
