Former mayor Ron Emond seized control of a special meeting of council, which took place in front of approximately 250 Hastings Highlands ratepayers last Monday.
“I don’t believe I need an introduction,” said Emond during question period, addressing the mayor as Vivian, as he declared curb-side garbage collection to be the most significant issue facing ratepayers.
“Municipal government is about providing services – and Vivian, you are taking these away from your constituents,” said Emond, who called into question council’s data relating to this cost and the contentious decision to withdraw the service last year.
