'Peter Principle' catches up to New Tecumseth councilto the editor,
Posted October 22, 2012
Has the "Peter Principle" finally been achieved by our town
council and staff? Have they breached the final barrier to attain group
incompetence? Is it possible this group could sell a piece of land that
had been used for many years to store road salt on it, without doing a
basic environmental study on the soil condition before selling it? Then
having the sale go south when it's discovered the soil is contaminated?
The land purchased is purportedly to build another rink in
Beeton. Yep, Beeton which is famous for having a dysfunctional minor
hockey organization and is the home turf of Councillor Richard Norcross.
Editor's Note: Mayor Mike MacEachern provided the following information this morning: "A Phase 1 and 2 ESA was completed in 1993. Clean up undertaken in 1995. A phase 1 ESA Update was completed in 2001. The conclusion was that there are no significant issues. A new update would be proposed as is the case in any Town acquisition of property should the Town ultimately decide to acquire the property."
