Ex­clu­sion thoughts

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -


I read to­day that PCC had spent an un­bud­geted $850,000 in part to save pos­si­bly mil­lions in re­lo­cat­ing a sew­er­age pump sta­tion at Whitby and thought per­haps I could make Coun­cil­lor Mur­rell happy by writ­ing pos­i­tively on the mat­ter.

But then I won­dered why it was nec­es­sary to have the dis­cus­sion with the pub­lic ex­cluded. Per­haps it was be­cause men­tion would be made of the coun­cil em­ployee who ap­proved the place­ment of the pump sta­tion on pri­vate land in the first place, in­stead of on a re­serve con­tri­bu­tion, which wouldn’t have caused a po­ten­tial is­sue?
