E-mail Print PDF

Editor,

Last month I sent in a letter to the editor that you published regarding the theft of the donation box at our charity store, The Cat's Meow, in Meaford.

I would appreciate it if you could print this follow-up letter to the editor, thanking people for stepping up and donating.

Thank you to the good people of Meaford

Early last month, someone stole the donation box in the Cat's Meow store on Boucher Street, off Sykes, the retail store of the Clarksburg Cat Shelter.

OPP Association Asking Municipalities to Thoroughly Analyze Estimates

E-mail Print PDF

Editor,

As reactions to the new OPP billing model announced last week continue to come in from around the province, it is important that all stakeholders in this issue take a step back and examine the facts.

Cutting through the rhetoric, two facts have remained clear throughout this debate.

Firstly – With some taxpayers paying $9 per household while others are paying over $900, it is clear that a fairer model is necessary. Municipal leaders have been asking for a new model and were consulted extensively on its creation. By charging each municipality the same base cost per property, the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services and the OPP have brought fairness to a system that has not changed in 17 years.

Appreciation For Volunteer Appreciation Party

E-mail Print PDF

Editor,

A sincere thank you to the Council and staff of the Municipality of Meaford for the Volunteer Appreciation Party. It gets more inviting, local and greener every year.

When our CAO said that green should not be a stand-alone pillar in the Meaford Economic Development Strategy but an integral part of everything we do, she was validating an ongoing process that has been happening at these events for the past several years.

Those who focus on buying green, local, regional and provincial food and products for home or a big event know how challenging it can be to source all of one’s needs.Add recycling 99 percent of everything into the mix and partygoers are left with a high standard to emulate.
