Town Hall

A while since my last post – this is a busy season.

Last night’s webcast town hall attracted 150 participants.  This is a new format for us at City Hall and worked extremely well.  Allows us to bring Council right to people’s homes and mobile devices.  Watch for the video soon on the City’s website, and look for more of these in the future.

    I am wondering Jeff if you will do the obvious and finally realize that we need to follow suite and ask for a Policing quote from the OPP. If Bradford can step up on this issue why haven’t we? Barrie needs to get out of local Policing. If you listen then you will have no problem proving that you are a mayor of the people and doing it. I don’t want past revelations, I like many others want a fresh quote and the numbers. Give us tranparency.
