Taxpayers Association slams CAO’s defence of staffing levels

On September 1st, Lydia Smith wrote a letter to Cobourg asking for an explanation of why the Town’s staffing in the Parks and Recreation departments had grown much faster than the Town had grown. Mayor Gil Brocanier immediately declared it to be factually wrong and then on October 19, CAO Stephen Peacock wrote an official response. (See links below). In a presentation to Council on Monday night, the Cobourg taxpayers Association said that “the report by CAO Stephen Peacock regarding Lydia Smith’s letter of September 1st raises more questions than it provides answers.”
