For those of you interested in affairs from Midland town hall, one would think there is a Spring house cleaning going on, with key people either being sacked or moving on. One can only wonder if others will be made to walk the plank which could easily see other town hall employees holding the bag to keep the Good Ship Midland afloat.
Whenever employees are forced out or move on, there’s always the lingering question, why?! This particular council is not known for its transparency although it continues to set records for the number of in-camera meetings it has staged behind closed doors since the last municipal election.
At the rate folks are leaving what appears at times to be a sinking ship, we might see a mass exit before there is a calm at town hall again…..combine what is going on at town hall to the uncertainty of whether or not our fire department will go all volunteer and if our police force will be taken over by the OPP and why the former fire chief left…..it is a formulae for distrust and possibly in due course maybe even work to rule. And could you blame those on the town’s payroll?
