Reader Would be Thankful For a Tar & Chip Road Surface


I’m glad the vote to asphalt Concession A was recorded. Now I’ll know who not to vote for next time around. Those five councillors should be ashamed of themselves for going against established guidelines and staff recommendations.

David Rose, Meaford
