Residents to Debate Hiring of New CAO

Dear Sir,

The topic of whether we should have a Chief Administrative Officer for the Municipality of Meaford appears to be on the minds of many concerned taxpayers. In order to discuss and discover all the benefits, pro or con of this staff position for Meaford, a 'Grand Debate' will be held on Thursday, April 5, commencing at 7 p.m. at the Meaford Golf Club.

The invitation sent to our Mayor Clumpus read:

Our understanding is that you are in favour of hiring a replacement CAO. We therefore request that you participate and argue your position in a 15 minute speech… your participation in this debate will be greatly appreciated.”
