Writer unhappy with handling of landfill ban
To the Expositor:
Councillors and reeves are voted into office by the taxpayer. Taxpayers dollars help to pay the wages of town employees.
In a court of law you are deemed to be â€śinnocent until proven guilty.â€ť In most differences of opinions or actions there is usually two sides to a problem. Were both sides heard in this case? Appears doubtful! Are our council members and town employees invincible?
Should council not have settled the so-called problem at the local level? Instead (a month) later have a Toronto lawyer (at considerable expense to the taxpayers) informed the landfill users â€śby letterâ€ť that they have been banned for one year from the landfill property!
How many more landfill users will be banned because the landfill attendant couldnâ€™t take criticism for a job not well done! By doing their job, by helping landfill users as they drop garbage off, youâ€™d have â€śhappy usersâ€ť and not have unwelcome criticism! My opinion: honest criticism isnâ€™t considered to be of a â€śthreatening nature.â€ťKaren VanZant Manitowaning
