Firm's 'significant investment' will create thousands of ...

Just what we need more service jobs with no benifits. Is this where we are suppose to encouage our kids to work? Is this councils way of telling kids you want to work close to home aimlow.  (Mar 22, 2011 | post #2)

Does Council need credit counselling

When the population is not intrested enough to vote for change you will get a goverment that is out of touch with reality. How much would things be different if the council had learned to live like the rest of us. The fastest growing bill we face is our taxes(or sould I say special tax levies). We can only hope to survive 4 more years and than remember what this council is doing.  (Mar 22, 2011 | post #5)

Hydro is becoming unaffordable so is Ted Arnott

How come all you ever hear from Ted is talk and more talk? When the PC were in power where was he than? Just think if we had his salary and pension sky rocketing Hydro rates wouldn't be a problem. With his anti labor biased what do you think will happen to the few remaining good jobs if he is reelected?  (Mar 15, 2011 | post #2)

Free press

I think it's time that our local paper changes its name to WE MAKE COUNCIL LOOK GOOD,or how about the COUNCILS VOICE. I get tired of seeing only half the facts with almost everything the paper reports.I can't help wondering if council is writing the stories. Take the hockey meeting I noticed there was no mention of Fogal's amendment to build the Gellert centre phase 2 in 2015 instead of 2023 or that if the projections of ice time rentals are not met what that will do to our property taxes. I for one would like to know when a councillor wants to spend more money that we don't have. The paper keeps printing half truths and is afraid to ask the hard questions. Also where was the story about Georgetown south residents getting brushed off when all they wanted was a stop sign.  (Mar 15, 2011 | post #1)

Hospital issue fails fairness test

I think a lot of people are missing the point.Something has to be done about hospital shopping why should someone from outside the community pass 3 or 4 hospitals and the residents who are asked to pay have to wait for stitches or x rays because our local hospital is over worked.If you need an emergancy room why are you passing Hospitals to comeout here? All hospitals need a policy that if you don't go to the nearest hospital it's not an emergancy so you wait!  (Mar 15, 2011 | post #2)

Region considers - Big Pipe' a possibility for...

The water pipe is coming but where is the money to build it? We in Halton hills will have to pay our share and with the funding commitments already made what will cost more in the future Water or gas. The money can only come from devlopment fees,property taxes or the water bills so get ready to pay more.  (Mar 14, 2011 | post #4)

Pot Hole in town of Halton Hills a big mess

Get ready for more we know won't have the money to keep the roads in shape. By committing us to the arenas we have left ourselves with only two options Raise taxes or raise debt. Where is the money coming from for the Hospital? We have got to learn to build as we can afford it and stop putting tax dollars into intrest payments on the debt. If you can't afforad it don't buy it  (Mar 14, 2011 | post #8)

For sale? Not so fast

It is nice to see somebody willing to take a second look at keeping town assets. Even though repeatedly Fogol has come out in favor of selling the property and building a high rise that Georgetown just doesn't need. Where was council when we lost the pool and Playgound that used to be on the site? What would be wrong in keeping the property and using it for a community centre?  (Mar 14, 2011 | post #2)
