New Brunswick municipal politicians are hoping a property assessment review underway of the province's six pulp and paper mills will restore some of the $5.9 million in property tax reductions won by the facilities five years ago that caused financial problems in several communities.

"As you can imagine, it was significant," said Edmundston Mayor Cyrille Simard in an email to CBC News about the effect the 2014 tax changes had in his community.
