LETTER: More information on amalgamation required


The hot topic in the area appears to be amalgamation. There are petitions and it seems the town supports it and the county wants to obtain more information before supporting it.

Feel passionate about something you read or saw in the Journal? Concerned about a decision of council? Why not get it off your chest and write a letter to the editor.

I am a resident of Hants West and I also own properties in Windsor. I know the present value of tax dollars in Windsor for my properties and my home in Hants West. I know I get more value for my tax dollars in Hants West. I have lived almost my entire life in West Hants.

My partners and I, over the years, have developed more than 100 residential home and recreational property sites in Hants West and Windsor. I know the business of dealing with Hants West councils and Town of Windsor councils.

Before I could make an intelligent decision in support of amalgamation, I would certainly need more information and I am glad the county has deferred any decision favouring amalgamation until more information is available.

I did not sign any petition.

I live in Falmouth, in Hants West, and have lived in Falmouth almost my entire life. I have travelled around the world on adventure tours and haven’t found a better place I would like to reside and to bring up a family. 

I think the latest Hants West councillor to get elected supported amalgamation in his platform.

The voter turnout in Falmouth was approximately 23 per cent. It seems he does not have a lot of support for amalgamation.
