In this economy, amid concerns around infrastructure funding for Milton, Canadas fastest-growing municipality, should the Town be spending $1 million on a glass wall for the new Town Hall?

In this economy, amid concerns around infrastructure funding for Milton, Canada's fastest-growing municipality, should the Town be spending $1 million on a glass wall for the new Town Hall?

Below is a letter to the editor from Andrew Goodwin about the $1 MILLION glass wall for the new Milton Town Hall. I’ve talked about this before as well, so everyone knows where I stand but it seems other Miltonians are also questioning Milton Town Council’s thought process. 

If you want things to change, they have to hear from you.

DEAR EDITOR:

I can’t believe the Town of Milton is getting a window for the expanded Town Hall at a cost of about $1 million. 

That’s the most outrageous thing I have ever heard town council approve. I don’t know how Mayor Gord Krantz can wake up every morning knowing this — especially with so many people having lost their jobs.

You could take that taxpayers’ money and build some affordable housing.

Councillors should have a hard time looking in the mirror, as their jobs are safe while other families struggle.

If they need an idea for how to spend the money, how about a crosswalk sign on Bronte Street where the housing projects are. They took out the flashing light and now the kids have to cross the street at their own judgment as cars don’t have to stop anymore.

Yeah, that’s another good move by our town council.

Guess they wanted to save some money for their expensive window for their fancy Town Hall.

ANDREW GOODWIN, MILTON

Municipal councillors’ jobs aren’t that safe… every 4 years they are up for grabs during a municipal election.

2010 is the next one. Just over a year away.
