Letter from the Province re GrassRoots Guelph petition

Staff memo.

Please find attached a letter from Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing Linda Jeffery, stating that the Province will take no action on a petition from GrassRoots Guelph requesting an audit of the City of Guelph’s finances.

I am not surprised that the Province has confirmed there is no cause for concern, as the City’s performance and reputation are strong.

As the Minister’s letter states, we have offered to meet with the lead petitioners to address their concerns. In the spirit of openness and transparency, as well as constructive and informed dialogue, I have requested that the material provided to the Province by our staff be shared in a report to Council. I would encourage Mr. Barker to attend as a delegate and address his concerns to Council in an open, public forum.

Please click here to read a public statement from our CAO. I will also post the Minister’s letter on my blog.
