The following document was provided to us with the permission to share it leading up to the public meetings at 2pm and 7pm at the sports and rec centre. The document contains a graphic that shows the projected town savings to be virtually none instead of the $8 million that the town’s CAO and consultant are trying to sell us. Many locals in the community have taken to critical review of the town’s numbers and found them to be disturbingly inaccurate. This document provides some “talking points” for the meetings today and explains why the town’s numbers cannot be relied upon when making this important decision.
