IT GETS WORSE.
If I was a paranoid person, I would THINK that our Council is in cahoots with Highlands, but I am NOT a paranoid person.
But then, an email arrived last night advising about this weeks Council meeting, 9:am at the municipal building Thursday March 4.
One of the items of note is a report by Andrew Osyany and Andrew Fyfe, municipal lawyer and planner regarding the proposed demolition control bylaw.
The report states: "Township Council has before it a draft demolition control bylaw which has been held in abeyance pending public approval. The only submission received was from Allan Leibel on behalf of Highland Companies."
In fact, between January 7, 2010 and February 4, 2010 eighteen letters in support of passing the demolition control bylaw were received by Council and posted with their agendas and minutes on the municipal website.
The ONLY letter received in opposition to the demolition control bylaw was (can you guess?) Highland Companies and who did Council and staff meet with privately in respect of this issue (altogether now...) Highland Companies!!
Hm....like I say if I were a paranoid person.....but I am not.
If you would like to express your displeasure/disbelief/distress/dissatisfaction to Council, forward your emails to Mayor and Council via email@example.com
