CFN – With the budget committee whittling the Fitzy tax down to 2.71 percent this year City Council is facing a $500K funding request from the CCH foundation.
One councilor is vowing to propose a motion to defer that decision. Councilor Rivette, who was disappointed by the absence of CCH representation at the EOHU/Champlain LHIN meeting last week at council over the sale of the Cornwall General hospital site, has concerns that are holding back his support for the extra loot!
This scribbler also wonders at why CCH would go to the tax payer since their role was to convince the public to donate to the cause.
While our health is a huge consideration obviously the Foundations failure should be examined before taxpayers are burdened further.
If you were on council would you vote to give the CCH Foundation a half a million dollars this year? You can post your comments below.
