The Municipality of Meaford has launched a new app and online tool where residents can find their garbage schedule, sign up for reminders, or search items to find out if they should be placed in the blue bin, green bin, or garbage.
Residents can visit the website at www.meaford.ca/waste and search for their address in the new tool.
Ontario Superior Court Justice Kevin McHugh has ordered 2014 mayoral candidate Ray McHugh (no relation) to pay a total of $16,500 in court costs to Mayor Barb Clumpus and the Municipality of Meaford after unsuccessful appeal related to the election expenses of his opponents.
In a decision released on March 20, the judge ordered McHugh to pay $9,000 to Clumpus and $7,500 to the municipality. Clumpus had been seeking more than $13,000 in costs, while the municipality sought $15,505 in legal costs after McHugh's challenge of reported campaign expenses for both Mayor Clumpus and second place candidate Jim McPherson ended up before the courts.
