Ministry nixes grassroots petition

The Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing has said it will take no further action in response to a petition from GrassRoots Guelph requesting an audit of the city’s finances.
“I am satisfied that the remaining questions raised within the petition are local matters and the responsibility of Guelph City Council to address,” said a Feb. 25 letter to Mayor Karen Farbridge and council from the minister, Linda Jeffrey.
The letter, made public on Coun. Ian Findlay’s Ward 2 blog, outlines action the ministry took. This includes reviewing  concerns raised by the petitioners and facilitating information-sharing meetings with the lead petitioners and city  officials.
City hall administration is willing to meet the petitioners to address the financial questions in the petition, Jeffery’s letter said. “Ministry staff are available to help facilitate such a meeting if requested,” she said.
