Good morning CFN,
I am writing with a suggestion which should benefit the community as a whole and to give you a positive way of helping the Cornwall community.CAO Paul Fitzpatrick deemed it necessary not to spend out of his exorbitant salary to get a tow out of a ditch, but instead chose to get a city employee and payloader to pull his car out of deep snow after hours, ultimately costing the city taxpayer 600 dollars.
My suggestion is your paper CFN, and the community should come together to raise enough money to buy the CAO Paul Fitzpatrick a gold membership to CAA. He will be covered for a year. It costs $104.00 annually and even provides up to 200km worth of towing with the CAA Plus package.
This act alone will make sure that the good CAO will not have to spend out of his own pocket for a tow (perish the thought), will not have to use the city taxpayer dollars either, and should this issue arise again, that’s 500 dollars savings that could potentially be saved for the city taxpayer. Also your paper will have something positive to do for the city and community. This will also help bring the community together in a positive way and have our voices heard.
Here is a link for CAA
I thank you for your time,
Cornwall Tax Payer.
