Ken Strauss, CTA Director, gave a delegation outlining concerns regarding a Lakefront Utility Services request to borrow $2.3M from the Town to complete an initiative related to changing out aging water meters in the Town of Cobourg. He provided information on less expensive alternative approaches together with a summary of errors and omissions in the report that was submitted with the loan request.
Barry Gutteridge, Director of LUI, has requested that the Town agree to an amendment of the 2006 promissory note of $7M with the Town of Cobourg. Most people do not understand this and would rather not read or think about it.
Gerry Walker has been communicating with the Town for two years trying to get an answer to his question of why the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee request to act as a Steering Committee was never required to act as an Advisory Committee.
Welcome to Part 3 of our Back to Basics series
In Part 1, we said, “In order to thrive, Cobourg Council must prioritize effectively”. Nowhere is this more important than when setting the Town’s operating and capital budgets. In fact, it will be one of our Council’s first duties.
In the Regular Council meeting on April 30, 2018, two delegations were presented to Council.
Cobourg Taxpayers Association (CTA) Director Paul Pagnuelo presented a request to establish a review that is independent, time-bound, and inclusive of the public, and to consider the establishment of a temporary Ad Hoc Committee to direct the review proposed by Councillor Burchat.
