Mayoral Candidate Concerned About Cell Towers


The following letter has been sent to Meaford's council and staff:

Dear Mayor Richardson, Deputy Mayor Harley Greenfield and Council, Staff and MP Larry Miller,

It is with a sense of urgency that I respectfully ask you to consider implementing a policy on cell tower placement within the Municipality of Meaford. And I respectfully ask you to ensure that the proponent of Rogers Site C4272 “Meaford Town” process of approval be delayed until such time as Meaford has adopted a policy on cell tower placement.

Reader- If Staff Proposed to Buy an Elephant, Council Would Ask "What Colour?"

Dear Editor,

The $923,500 Meaford  2013 surplus budget makes taxpayers wonder whether or not council and senior staff are acting prudently on behalf of taxpayers. The money was raised from a 7.8% tax increase, which was preceded by four years of double digit increases.

But, there is more money that was raised in the Capital Budget, which ended the year with a $425,640 surplus. Between the operating and capital tax payer support budgets,that's more than $1.3 million  of surplus money for 2013. Was a 2% tax increase really necessary?

Reader Thoughts on Meaford Surplus


Any surplus money that Meaford has above its budget in any fiscal year should be returned to taxpayers as a credit on their next tax payment.

This council voted a tax increase for 2014.

At the public pre-budget meetings taxpayers mad it very clear to council that they wanted tax relief. Council refused to act on these concerns. Any new projects should require budget approval. It is hard to believe that budget projections were so far off actual revenue income.
