At the last municipal election just over a year ago, the three main concerns of the voters were Reduce taxes, Road conditions, and Review staff levels.
Reduce Taxes. The 2015 budget was rushed into being by staff before the new council had a chance to acclimatize themselves to their new positions. I emphasize the fact that the budget was 'rushed' into being. A delay of ONE single day would have seen Grey County return $329,000 to MOM's coffers which should have resulted, if council was serious about reducing taxes, in a 0% tax increase for the year. Neighbouring municipalities also received refunds which in most cases were returned to the taxpayers.
