Re: City bud­get talks start­ing to heat up (Oct. 10)

I am hav­ing a dif­fi­cult time try­ing to un­der­stand city coun­cil’s bud­get pri­or­i­ties.

We of­ten have a short­age of am­bu­lances to care for the sick and in­jured of this com­mu­nity but we choose, with our mu­nic­i­pal vot­ing priv­i­leges, to pre­fer splash pads, air­port classes and sport­ing venues. With above av­er­age tax­a­tion and an­nual ridicu­lous tax in­creases, one would think we would have top-notch fa­cil­i­ties in Brant­ford. How did we ever get to th­ese ab­surd pri­or­i­ties.

Peo­ple can­not keep blam­ing coun­cil­lors. They were elected by the com­mu­nity. busi­ness at the Lyn­den Park Mall.

Would it not be much bet­ter to have Costco be­come part of the cur­rent mall com­plex that has plenty of park­ing rather than squeez­ing Costco into a cor­ner lot that does not ap­pear to suit­able.
