Large Animal Rescue Instruction at the Fire Hall Appreciated


I had the opportunity to attend a course on the weekend of November 17 that took place at our Meaford Fire Services Training Facility. It was put on by the University of Guelph Equine Centre and offered instruction in Large Animal Rescue.

The amazing equine team from Guelph was invited for the second time this year by our Fire Chief Scott Granahan to use our training centre, and it was attended by firefighters, mounted police members, and equine trail patrol representatives from all over Ontario.

Reader Expects Unpleasant Surprises as Library Project Proceeds


So it seems we have finally decided to locate our new library in the old Foodland building, and early estimates are in. Now we begin to move into the zone at which municipalities and other bureaucracies truly excel – miscalculations and cost over-runs.

Apparently it should cost about 5.5 million dollars give or take. Hang on folks, there are still many more shoes to drop. Next thing you know, oops, we didn’t realize the electrical system needs a total upgrade. Never mind, a million should take care of that, and then oops we really should upgrade the entire water supply/sewer systems. Don’t worry that should come in at just under another million, and finally another oops, is that black mould we see?

Concern About Cost For New Library

Dear Editor,

I'm not at all surprised but still disturbed at the already increased cost of the new library.

There's no doubt that Meaford library needs a new home and initially it seemed that the Sykes Street OPP option was reasonable at $3-4 million, even with the certainty that costs always exceed original predictions.

Now, with a change of location, the projected cost is getting scary indeed.
