court-regularEditor:

I was reviewing the web site. It looks great but I have a concern about the court news. You listed the court appearances including civil, criminal and family court. In those are included case and settlement conferences which are really just a step in the process towards trial. However there may not be a trial.

In the case of family court I see no reason for this to be posted on your site. Even though this is a public document I fail to see why listing family law appearances (mainly custody and divorce issues) of families in our area should be "news". Having just been through a very long a difficult divorce I would not want my children to have seen our names there.

You need to reconsider this.

Editor's note: Point taken. We will remove family law appearances from the docket.


David-Adair-regularI submitted my papers for the office of Deputy Mayor of Owen Sound. Much of the Deputy Mayor's job will be representing the City at Grey County. With over a decade of City Council experience I feel I am in an ideal position to represent the best interests of the City at Grey County. I know and have worked with many councillors throughout Grey County.
The City and the County need to take a more regional approach to many issues. This includes development, the Harbour, and expansion of Georgian College. These are regional issues that the County needs to be involved with. The County commitment to support the Regional Hospital Campaign is a good example of this.

cell-letter-regularThere is an alternative to a cell tower in the harbour; in fact, there is a solution.
For the past few months, numerous proposals to build cell towers in Meaford's neighbourhoods have angered and upset residents. At present, a 91-foot tower is proposed for the harbour, around 40ft from where The Farmers Market is held in the Rotary Pavilion. Furthermore, the Meaford community has been made aware that 'there are more cell towers to come.'

cell-regularEditor:
On June 9th 2014, Todd White, Executive Director of Canadian Radio-communications and Notification Service (CRINS) made a presentation to the councillors in the Municipality of Meaford. In his presentation, Todd mentioned an option to the current 90 ft. cell tower proposal for Meaford's waterfront.

This option would be to place low-powered radio repeaters on street lights in Meaford's downtown. These would be channelled to connect to fibre optic cables already in place.
