The People Say No To A 60% Pay Increase Feb 22. 2012 | Comments (2)
At the February 27th, 2012, 7pm council meeting in the Township Of Leeds and The Thousand Islands, we plan on presenting the petition asking council to rescind their decision to give themselves a collective 60% increase. We encourage you to attend this meeting and make not only your voice heard but also your presence in the council chambers and in the municipal building felt. We hope to be on the agenda for the night, however if council decides to censor us we still plan to present the petition to them. We will make a professional and courteous presentation to council and we encourage a peaceful and civil gathering. The citizens of Leeds and Thousand Islands were denied their right to input into this contentious issue when the bylaw was read and passed in one sitting.
