Council gave him a standing ovation at the end of the Mayor's send-off eulogy. In the course of his speech, Bob stated; "Over the weekend I was cleaning out, um, files, lets just put it at that, and there was a lot of really neat memories, um, a lot of good times. The stuff that wasn't so good has now been through the shredder, so we don't worry about that".

Two and a half years ago Robert (Bob) Austin accepted an offer from council to fill the position of CAO for the Town of Halton Hills. Since then, taxpayers have suffered a number of large tax increases. He negotiated a substantial pay increase for his fellow directors/previous co-workers. Austin was Chief Administrative Officer for the administration that discriminated against a community member, in what many considered; maliciously persecuting a man for raising Town safety issues which were published in the Toronto Star, but never made newsprint in any of the local papers. Bob Austin was also Chief Administration Officer of the administration that discriminated against a non-profit newsgroup for dissent, which also never made the local papers.

Ironically, during the course of his retirement speech, Bob Austin stated; "thanks to the media, for all your help, knowing what to write and when to write it".
