Hypocrite Hart Soaks South Stormont Over Water Rights by Jamie Gilcig

Hypocrite Hart Soaks South Stormont Over Water Rights by Jamie Gilcig

Tammy-Hart-Recused-13Aug14CFN – For someone that screeches about accountability, transparency, and deep concerns about saving the tax payers of South Stormont money, Deputy Mayor Tammy Hart seems to take the Hypocrite of the Year award as her family farm is gouging taxpayers to the tune of a 100%  raise and a total of a whopping 400% to the community for cluster wells on their property.

The township had two clusters of wells for testing purposes but has elected to double that to four.

The Deputy Mayor also complained about raises to council and staff although has not rejected her own.

What’s even scarier is that because of Ministry of Environment (MOE) regulations will force the township  to pay thousands of dollars to get water rights to at least one acre of farmland from the Hart family eventually.

Prices for farm land are approximately $10K per acre.

Ms Hart recused herself from Wednesday night’s council meeting and sat in the crowd giving dirty looks to SSN editor Reg Coffey while council discussed the issue.

richard_waldroffCouncilor Richard Waldroff spoke to CFN regarding  the 400% raise:

I’m satisfied with the deal.  Spread over twelve years it’s a good deal for us.

Councilor Cindy Woods also spoke to CFN and had the following to say below in our interview.

Her biggest fear was where the costs might end before calling Deputy Mayor Hart a hypocrite.

Mayor McGillis was not available for comment and the Deputy Mayor had not responded to CFN as of press time.

What do you think about Ms Hart jacking South Stormont rate payers for water rates CFN viewers?

100% of what and 400% of what? You’re not very clear on the issue here? The Township needs wells that are on her land? Is that what I’m reading? Is she supposed to give it for free?

If she owns the property, she should be able to set the rate as high as she possibly can. I doubt anyone commenting here would do otherwise if the MOE was mandating this for your lands. Also, negotiating prices for land rights you are being forced to negotiate at risk of appropriation, should not be a reflection of this women’s politics. It doesn’t make her a hypocrite at all. It’s not like she advertised her wells through her office to cash in on taxpayer monies. No…the ministry it treading on her land with tax payer monies. Last time I checked,… Read more »

So Dwight Dugas, Tammy Hart should be able to soak the taxpayers for as much as she wants? She’s always preaching restraint. This goes against what she says.

No Hugger1, I was wrong. She should just pack up her things and give her entire property over to the bureaucracy. Because her rights as a private citizen are invalid, right?. How you can compare what she votes on in council chambers to what she and her husband decide on concerning their personal property is alien to me. Apples and oranges.

That’s the point I was trying to get across Dwight Dugas, the one Admin pointed out.
