The proposal to make the operation of the waste treatment plant a municipal employee function rather than a contracted function smacks of empire building by staff. Adding two more full time employees to the already bloated municipality headcount is lunacy.
Of course staff will claim savings with this move but that is pure equine excrement.
It is common knowledge that civil service jobs are outpacing the private sector in compensation and benefits. Already, almost half of the Municipality of Meaford’s tax revenue goes towards staff compensation. Is it therefore any surprise that bridge and road infrastructure are neglected?
