Scott Kendell’s answers are:
34. Two CAOs Pay?
I did not think that hiring a CAO with the old council was in the best interest of Amherstburg but then again the question remains why are these decisions being made so close to an election?
There should be a transition period between new council and CAO and also Mr. Phipps with the new CAO that would be in the best interest of Amherstburg. In regards to the wages for same if it is part of contract that is binding Amherstburg must honor, Let’s move Amherstburg in a more positive direction.
35. Development Fees Collected?
Everybody has to pay there fair share no favoritism, You have to have a set of rules and contracts that are agreed upon before starting any project and people that understand the consequences so they are protecting the interest of the town of Amherstburg. On the other side of promoting Amherstburg for future growth you could have incentives for developers to invest in the new Amherstburg. “Let’s build a new Amherstburg together”
36. Special Development Deals?
I would be shocked if there was special deals made but not surprised. This is a good area for transparency The developer is to shoulder all costs to hook into services roads sidewalks etc. and provide a written binding agreement for the same. That is signed by appropriate departments and approved by council. Nobody rides for free. Maybe a ward system committee made up of island residents would be beneficial to island residents where they can have fire , police, healthcare, clinic, ambulance, ferry service that they pay for to service their own needs as they see fit. With the size of the island and the growth they are seeing they will need to address these issues sooner rather than later, One mans dream should not cost us anything more than the original agreement that was signed when given various permits.
37. Where Are Our Voter Notifications?I received mine last week, I was questioning where it was also from what I understand he is trying to help out the town of Amherstburg just for this election and would like to thank him for his efforts under the circumstances.
