Well is dry

Dear Editor:

The well has gone dry.

It’s time Centre Wellington council puts a freeze on grants and purchases of new vehicles. It’s time the BIAs, cycle, festival and art groups put on their big boy pants, be creative and raise their own money instead of coming to the taxpayers for money.

I don’t see a pickup truck chasing a fire truck every time it goes out. With proper maintenance, these trucks could last another couple of years until times improve.

And everybody in the roads department does not need a new red truck.

The taxpayers are struggling to put food on the table and pay taxes. Some have no jobs. Wake up, council; times are tough.

Don’t look at it (like one councillor does) through rose coloured glasses as prudent spending.

Jay Alexander,
