Reader Concerned About Proposed Cell Tower

Editor,

I was enlightened to read Jim McPhersons' letter regarding the upcoming changes afforded to Municipalities vis-a-vis the placement of cell towers within residential areas.

While the rumour has been out there for quite some time about a proposed Rogers' tower on land leased by Knights Hardware, there has been no proactive information coming from Council that I am aware of. Other potentially contentious matters such as Police services have had large public meetings, and I read that another meeting is being lined up to discuss water tower repairs.

Reader Responds to Letter Concerning Municipal Name

Editor,

In response to our letter concerning the Municipal name,  R. Paul Kneeshaw of Kitchener misses the point by a league and a half.

His paean of effusive praise to Meaford, the town, may, or may not be warranted, but no one is out to relieve the town of Meaford of its original incorporated name.

The town is Meaford and all references to that name should be exclusive to the town.

Mayoral Candidate Concerned About Cell Towers

Editor,

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.
