It seems as if we are now going to a ‘user pay’ situation in St. Lazare. We will be paying an extra fee on top of our already high taxes to pick up leaves. The mayor says, "…there's a large portion of the population that did not use" the pick-up service therefore anyone who wants the service will now have to pay for it.
There are many things in this town that I do not use but I still pay taxes for.
We don't have sidewalks or street lights like some areas so why are we paying for them?
Do we really need a Director of Town Planning and the Environment as well as an Environment Project Manager?
Do we also need such and expensive Town Hall?
This mayor is only interested in his own priorities and not the citizens. He is acting more and more like a dictator and either he is voted out or I have a feeling that many people will want to leave.
