On Tuesday, the New Brunswick government announced it will spend up to eight million dollars to assist residents in the flood-prone village of Perth-Andover.
Back in March, the St. John River breached its banks forcing about 500 residents from their homes. Damage estimates from the record flood were estimated at $25 million.
While many residents plan to stay in the community, several homeowners say they will relocate to a higher elevation.
The province is also giving residents the option of making renovations to their homes to make them safer from floods.
Stabilizing riverbanks, building a levee and improving flood forecasting are also a priority according to provincial officials.
