Thanks to You, We're Now Two!

I had no idea what to expect two years ago when, on an unseasonably warm day in mid-November of 2009, I made the last few clicks that officially launched The Meaford Independent website.

This week as we at The Meaford Independent celebrate our second anniversary, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has made The Independent possible.

A Letter to Our Readers From TMI Publisher Susanne Wussow

s_wussowTo our readers,

 

We're celebrating our second year of publishing independent news, commentary and letters - no Big Brother telling us what to write, print or say. It's just Indie and us, holding up a mirror to Meaford and reflecting the activities, goings-on, and community news in a clear and forthright way.

We Can Blame Ourselves For Property Tax Increases

MeBWmediaThe more I think about it, the more I think that Meaford Mayor Francis Richardson might be right.

 

When asked during a recent public budget presentation meeting at Meaford Hall if he was disappointed with the low public turnout for such an important meeting, the Mayor said he wasn't disappointed at all, and in fact the Mayor said, he took it as a sign that Meaford residents were happy with the decisions being made by he and his council.

In Search of False Information

MeBWmediaWe've been very concerned at The Meaford Independent about a comment made by Councillor Deborah Young at the October 24 meeting of council. Concerned because we care.

 

At that meeting, Councillor Young stated that false information had been given to the public about the proposed waste-to-energy facility that was being considered by council.

 

Councillor Young did not provide any details as to what false information had been passed along to the public, or who provided the false information.
