Councillor Diane Pouget’s answer to Question 17 is:
Council was well aware that many residents outside the core area of Amherstburg felt their needs were being ignored. Councillor Bart DiPasquale was successful in passing a motion to have budget meetings in Anderdon (old Fire Hall) and Malden (Sportsmen Club) in 2013.. Unfortunately, these meetings were not well attended. It is very important, that the new Council advertise all budget meetings and reach out to our residents for their input. Unfortunately, the new Council will have limited funds and must focus on needs instead of wants in order to pay down the debt and build up the reserves.
