By going to outside contractors for this service our township will:

  1. Lose the qualified staff we already have.
  2. Lose the ability to go back (if in a few years the contractor’s prices skyrocket).  Outsourcing may start out with initially low costs but once locked in has the potential to become very expensive.
  3. Lose our autonomy – is this the first step to Annexation and/or Amalgamation?  We have concerns that Cobourg will win the bid.  Their staff are considered very competent, but do we want to depend on Cobourg to provide our water?
  4. Would not a better option be…. To contract out only the supervisory position and keep all our township staff   qualified and working under the contracted supervisor?
  5. Council will make a decision soon.  We need to get the information out to all citizens of Hamilton Township on the water systems.

Ratepayers should email or call their councillors to give their opinion.
