North Huron council has failed on an epic level and they will blindly be approving an 18% increase in spending 07May2018. This increase is due to a huge spike in wages and salaries for town staff and hiring more police officers and the fact council never holds staff to account. If staff donít want to clean the sidewalks they donít have too. If staff donít want to maintain the Howson Dam, fill potholes, water plants, patch a roof, or repair safety rails they donít have too. Itís a great way to win votes from parasitic town staff that donít give a shit about our community.
Wingham now has the highest tax rate in Canada. This means we have the least efficient council in Canada. Since this exorbitant amount of money is being spent on salaries, advertising, ego-projects and ďconsultant feesĒ instead of maintaining our infrastructure, Wingham is rotting. There is zero doubt North Huron council is literally the worst in Canada.
Carter, MacGowan & Kuyvenhoven are largely responsible for the push to keep OPP out of Wingham and the spike in our taxes. To do this they bashed the OPP and opposed the wishes of the Wingham Police. It should be noted that MacGowanís retirement home in Morris-Turnberry currently gets free policing from Wingham police as they are are included in the patrol routes. Kuyvenhovenís Royal Homes and residence in Morris-Turnberry also get free policing. Kuyvenhoven has created a Royal Nightmare for Wingham, something that karma will hopefully balance out soon. Never trust an afterlife scammer.
NOTE: Councilís only role is to maintain our infrastructure and operate services that shouldnít be in private hands such as water and sewer, ensure the financial integrity of the municipality and to hold senior staff to account as per section 224 of the Municipal Act.
