Mayor, get control of your council
Why has our mayor lost control of city council? They cannot make a decision. They must continuously hire administrative staff to make their decisions for them. They can only think “SPEND, SPEND, SPEND.”
Why do we have an increase in the budget every year?
Has our mayor and council never heard of cutting? All city wages are extremely high. It’s time we had some cutbacks in wages and expenses. Each department should be given a budget and if they go over budget, that department’s administration should be demoted or fired.
Just common courtesy
Regarding the discussion about cab drivers and hospital patients. I believe you cannot and should not try to legislate common sense and common courtesy. The cabbies are not health workers, but they need to have more common courtesy and wait until their fare is in the house before leaving when it is extremely cold.
Council should concentrate on bringing in new business
With all the people moving into Brandon, we need more industry and full-time jobs. Has our city council ever had the compulsion to contact industries about building in our fine city, with loads of people looking for employment? Oh, I guess council is too busy with petty items and spending big bucks.
What does this mean?
Re: Daly Overpass. In the Tuesday, Jan. 14, Brandon Sun it states, “The Daly overpass will be redeveloped in partnership with the city.” I urge all ratepayers in Brandon to contact their councillor and ask what this means. The province is 100 per cent responsible for the reconstruction of this bridge.
