Committee of the Whole Meeting July 15, 2010
Deputations by Janice Menard of Consecon and our President Bill McMahon were received at the Committee of the Whole meeting
 in a last ditch effort to get our water rates down to an equitable level
throughout the County.


Consecon and area comes out to
Diane O'Brien's Water Meeting June 10, 2010
     Last night's water meeting was a great success. There were so many people in attendance with varring levels of frustration over the proposed 100% plus price update to our water rates. There was a wealth of information put forward by our Mayor, Diane O'Brien and Susan Turnbull. But what really got the backs up of the attendees was that Council feels that the water users in Picton, who we all feel get preferrential treatment, should have their increase phased in over 5 years. It was learned that these same useres never paid a cent to hook up to their water in the first place. The consensus was that since we paid over $5000 to hook up to our water they should pay their fair share, nearly $8000, to do the same. No one in this County should get special treatment.
     If you are as steamed about this issue, please come out to one or both proposed meetings on this subject on June 21st at the Ameliasburg Town Hall or June 23rd at the Crystal Pallace in Picton.
Let our Council representatives know that you are NOT pleased
and want equity in this County.
