Bart DiPasquale’s answers are:
17. Infrastructure and Services For All of Amherstburg
I strongly believe that all areas be treated equally in receiving services. It was evident during last election, many areas felt left out in the cold.
With our financial situation all projects of this nature need to be prioritized. Edgewater through an MOE citation is on the list in ridding of the lagoons and tying those areas to our Waste treatment plant. Texas road has been waiting for numerous years. A grant has been sought for both projects but , there no guarantees for grants.
We must live within our means and at the same time work on sustainable projects .
18. Re Police Contract Poison Pill Clause
I believe this part of the contract should be negotiated out of the contract so we can be on the same playing field as the rest of the Province I getting the best bang for the dollar.
