Some people are aware that money is going out far faster than it is coming in & that the development charges are slowing down. Highland is going to take forever to get sorted out and Mavrinac will produce nothing . it will cost the town - when the residents finally figure out what they want. Now it is passive stuff like hop-scotch !
BUT. And it is a big but. There is no will or push to change with this council. They feel secure.
I am not advocating any action at all - let another group take the reins this time

Therein lies the problem, my friends. This was a fresh Council as was the one before. Little has changed.
They are not snoozing at all, at all. They are very busy responding to the demands of special interest groups.
The rest of us are not advocating anything. The status quo is apparently acceptable with the affluent majority.
"There is no will to push or change with this Council".
Money is not going out faster than it's coming in. Taxes rise to feed the greedy maw.
Nary a murmur is heard.
"Wait until the next election....we'll show them"
There are two more budgets between now and the next election. Lots of opportunity for this council to buy itself back into office.
Why wouldn't they? It's a sure-fire strategy.
Never has it been easier for residents to inform the elected what they want from the municipality.
The needy ones just ask the Mayor quietly and the rest will fall into place.
To recline in a semi- somnambulant state and wave a languid hand in the general direction is not
conducive to change.
Every day I receive several petitions to sign.
None of them have anything to do with town business.
