Residents to Debate Hiring of New CAO

Dear Sir,

The topic of whether we should have a Chief Administrative Officer for the Municipality of Meaford appears to be on the minds of many concerned taxpayers. In order to discuss and discover all the benefits, pro or con of this staff position for Meaford, a 'Grand Debate' will be held on Thursday, April 5, commencing at 7 p.m. at the Meaford Golf Club.

The invitation sent to our Mayor Clumpus read:

Our understanding is that you are in favour of hiring a replacement CAO. We therefore request that you participate and argue your position in a 15 minute speech… your participation in this debate will be greatly appreciated.”

Frustration Over Bridges 021 & 022


It is unbelievable to me that, being on the town-line, it is only now coming to the council's attention that these bridges are equally owned by Meaford and Chatsworth municipalities.

Two years ago when I called the Chatsworth office to enquire on the status of this bridge repair I was told that they hadn't yet addressed it, but in any event, the costs would have to be shared with Meaford and that they had not heard from Meaford on the matter. Naturally I thought the Meaford town council would be better informed than a new resident to the area, especially before undertaking the huge expense they have made for the feasibility study.

The Future Of Meaford Is Yours To Change


Meaford has become unaffordable to the majority of its taxpayers.

Yearly increasing taxes caused by the present management of the community are failing to provide a solution.

It is a sad situation when a town’s municipal staff is the biggest employer in the community.

Taxpayers and elected council must realize they are operating a multi-million-dollar corporation and have to represent the majority of taxpayers.
