Mayor meeting with various provincial ministers
provincial Ministers will be meeting with Mayor Al McDonald over the next two days. It is part of the Rural Ontario Municipal Association and Ontario Good Roads Combined Conference. McDonald says they will be discussing projects important to the city – including infrastructure and transportation. He says he will also be meeting with the Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities to discuss how important it is to fund these institutions, so they can continue to grow. McDonald says the city faces a skill shortage of almost 5000 people 6-7 years from now. The heads and beds tax will also be addressed. McDonald says that tax has not gone up in years and is costing the municipality to provide those services.
