Appreciation For Local Police


I apologize to the OPP for complaining about not seeing them around Meaford much.

An officer explained to me, after I was almost hit on a pedestrian crossing and light crossing twice in one week, that the OPP have a huge area to cover, they work shifts and sometimes need two officers in one car.

The cars we see sitting in the parking lot at the police detachment are spares. Their cars are always on the road. They go as far as Mount Forest and Leith and as far away the other side.

What Will Happen to Current Library Building?

To the Editor,

I noted with some interest the council move to hire a consultant to assess the viability of the former Foodland building as a potential library.

Despite the painfully long process of discussing new library locations, there never seems to be mention of what to do with the CURRENT library building. It’s a beautiful 82 year-old building, but has no obvious potential to be a commercial entity, especially in a town with an average of 16 empty storefronts, not even counting the grocery store building, or the lengthy downtown stretch of abandoned houses and movie theatre.

Don't Close Grey Gables


This letter has been sent to Warden Barfoot and Grey County Council.

Unfortunately, the County of Grey has made a decision to close Grey Gables. This decision has so many people in our county upset, that the Past Wardens are now being approached by the 100's of people from Grey County and beyond, to try and have this decision reconsidered in favour of the status quo. The public has questions:

  • Has the country sought expression of interest to see if there is interest from the private sector to purchase Grey Gables?

  • If you are building a new facility, what will happen to the existing Rockwood Terrace building?

  • Why move a facility from the centre of the County, where it already owns approximately 45 acres of land, to a facility in a different community, where it would have to purchase more property?

  • Why has redevelopment of Rockwood Terrace not been costed as the County did with Lee Manor?
