Aylmer ignores request to cut costs at Complex

Aylmer councillors took no action on a Malahide council request to find $60,000 in East Elgin Community Complex efficiencies for 2014.

After some discussion at their March 10 meeting, councillors voted to receive and file the request. That means nothing further will be done with it.

Two councillors, Pete Barbour and Arthur Oslach, supported finding further savings at the Complex.

The other councillors agreed that the review of the Complex’s operations ― that had just been received from a Toronto consulting firm ― should be reviewed first before asking staff to find budget savings. That report was originally expected by the end of 2013.
