City priority: an archaeological dig, new real estate or caring for seniors?

Brantford, Ontario’s city hall is pondering three choices:

  • Give Laurier-YMCA another $3.1M to cover costs of an archaeological dig, which occurred before construction of the Laurier-YMCA began.
  • Spend $14.75M to purchase the Brantford’s Federal Building downtown, which may or may not be up for sale by the feds.
  • Follow through with a $62K to $154K (2-5%) cut to the budget of the John Noble Home, a long term care facility for seniors.

On two of the choices, the link below makes it clear what the right decision is:  “I suggest that council’s priority within the budget should be to take care of seniors, provide affordable housing and repair municipal infrastructure.”
