The anouncement will take place in Halifax at 10 a.m.
The appointment of a transition co-ordinator comes after the town passed a motion during a special council meeting lat Tuesday to dissolve the township and make application to become part of the Municipality of Cumberland County.
Mayor Max Snow says council had spent the previous three months looking at the decision when it became apparent the local government could not address the town's debt and would need to raise taxes just to maintain the present level of services.
