A couple of your editorials the last few weeks are very disturbing to a majority of taxpayers in the Municipality.
First you defended the bloated cost of the new library project by saying, “The Community supports the plan so I accept it.” I do not believe the Community accepts this particular project. As per the SDR survey there are 19 communities in the Municipality and I believe only one community (the town) is for this project and not everyone in town is on board with spending close to $5.5 million on a non-core infrastructure asset.
It took us rural folk four years of badgering our council to get a pothole-filled main road in Sydenham (Bayshore-Leith to Concession 23) repaved. This cost about $700,000. In a matter of weeks our council, with the support of one community in our municipality, decided to spend $1.5 million on the Foodland building without knowing the full costs and not offering a full business plan.
