Reader Responds to Letter Concerning Municipal Name


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

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?
