What a bunch of amateurs they have in that township office? What in gods name does a few road closures have to do with closing the office for a week and a half? I could possibly see them closing immediately after the roads washed out, as things were pretty crazy for a few days. But now, almost a week after the fact? The clerk, mayor and roads supt. need a wake up!

For your information FULLSTRINGER - the township office has to be closed in order to deal with an inordinate amount of paperwork dealing with ODRAP (Ontario Disaster Relief Assistance Program) in order to assist the various members of the community receive financial assistance for their losses not covered by insurance (as no insurance policy covers flood)....so they are not what you refer to them as and in fact are doing their best to help the community....information and facts are always a good place to start

Oh, pardon me. And the reason none of the other township offices are closed, is what? And the reason none of the other offices close on a Wed, every week, is what? And the reason your office can't seem to update the website on a regular basis, is what?
I could go on, but suffice to say, the office is run by amateurs.
