Was that so hard?

Dear Editor:

An open letter to the Town of Erin, regarding the release of information about severances paid to terminated employees .

I saw the clerk’s video giving the severance amounts for 2012-17.

Why was it so hard to tell citizens the truth? My goodness, it was like pulling teeth with barnyard pliers without pain killers!

You could have avoided all this by giving me the amount back in June 2017.

Now, we citizens want to know how much of our tax dollars went to the Bay Street lawyers to fight the Advertiser’s appeal to the Information and Privacy Commissioner. Yes, we really want to know!
