This is great. Every bullet point is about spending our money, except the marijuana bylaw, which if we give it tine will also costs us. Where are the discussions on budget cuts? The beat goes on.....

Actually that last point, I'm involved in. One of those parcels will actually make the town $ and be a great asset to the town. The second is a wash, won't cost extra/won't earn anything either, it just needs to be transferred to the correct dept. as there is a fire cistern on it, and the third is useless unbuildable land being annexed by CC onto existing CC land. I voted against, but was overruled. Won't cost the town anything, but it's locked up as CC land forever.
