  • The Wellington Advertiser - Rural pickup wasteful?
    of only two Wellington municipalities receive the service the process that got us to this point was evolutionary A two year pilot program that saw garbage and recycling picked up in Minto and Guelph Eramosa every other week resulted in the service being discontinued in Minto in December 2008 Only 22 per cent of rural Minto residents took advantage of the service at the time Pickup was continued in Guelph Eramosa which doesn t have a landfill or waste transfer station Participation there was almost double that in Minto In Erin rural pickup has been provided since the closure of a transfer station in Hillsburgh in May of 2010 One of the first things we hope to learn from the county s study is how heavily the service is being used in Erin and Guelph Eramosa today If participation is still under 50 one would have to question the need to send trucks up and down every concession in the county especially given almost 80 of rural Minto residents clearly considered the service unnecessary less than a decade ago February 12 2016 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines BUZZ Phase one of Morriston streetscape project to start this spring Guelph Eramosa council considers 7 1 increase in township taxes Neighbours voice concern over potential impact of Dirty Apron in Arkell County residents receive reprieve on increase in user pay garbage fees Cats Anonymous kicks off their

  • The Wellington Advertiser - ‘Big boy pants’
    Mount Forest and a brand new facility in Arthur We don t think he s actually suggesting Hillsburgh does not deserve a new library if so he should take a trip to the village and check out its current cramped antiquated facility But we believe the point being made by Lennox and supported by Centre Wellington s Kelly Linton is a fair one What happens when the county s library system overhaul is completed We highly doubt residents will receive a much needed break on their taxes The county will take that money and invest it elsewhere likely to address its cue newest political buzzwords infrastructure deficit As the province is finding out the time for grandiose projects and excessive discretionary spending has long since passed Now more than ever strategic in depth discussions the very type being urged by Lennox and Linton are needed to plot the county s future spending habits It s time for all county councillors to put on their big boy pants and commit to those difficult conversations February 5 2016 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines BUZZ Phase one of Morriston streetscape project to start this spring Guelph Eramosa council considers 7 1 increase in township taxes Neighbours voice concern over potential impact of Dirty Apron in Arkell County residents receive reprieve on increase in user pay garbage fees Cats Anonymous kicks off their Help Fix Rikki s Broken Heart

  • The Wellington Advertiser - N - Needs improvement
    pulled off a C with the rest scoring under 40 And yet as a frequent and impartial observer we would be comfortable suggesting these council members are all accessible and greatly concerned with ensuring the public s point of view is considered during debate Judging from the accompanying comments much of the concern about transparency can be traced to council s handling of personnel issues and most specifically the recent dismissal of long time CAO Patty Sinnamon Clearly citizens would like to know why council made the decision and feel they have some right to the information given they are paying the presumably substantial severance costs which have also been kept secret In many ways it s a fair expectation Did council make a good and fair decision one worth the financial price How are their constituents to know The Ontario government has already ruled through its Sunshine Law that the province s top paid civil servants forgo the right to privacy about their salary in return for a generous one Some jurisdictions notably Alberta have made disclosure of severances packages part of that same trade off It s time Ontario followed suit It s the transparent thing to do Patrick Raftis February 5 2016 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines BUZZ Phase one of Morriston streetscape project to start this spring Guelph Eramosa council considers 7 1 increase in township taxes Neighbours voice concern over
