The article by Lynne Lavery, “Internet notices require updated by-law” in the February 13 issue about whether the Municipality of Pontiac notified the public of its budget meeting according to the rules was very informative, but asked the wrong question.

The article by Lynne Lavery, “Internet notices require updated by-law” in the February 13 issue about whether the Municipality of Pontiac notified the public of its budget meeting according to the rules was very informative, but asked the wrong question. The question is not whether the rules were followed, but more importantly, why would a municipality would avoid timely budget consultations with the public? Given growing concerns over the large increase in business and residential taxes in the municipality, that’s a much more important question to answer.
