While many have raised questions both publicly and on social media about the actions of the Town’s CAO, an online media outlet in Brampton today posted an in-depth article that captures Mr. Schlange’s movements and hiring practices.
From his early days at Fort Erie to his current tenure in Grimsby, the article takes a long and factual look at where the CAO has been and who he brought along for the ride.

It was a very special evening on Monday night, with a Special Council meeting that largely focused around the special subject of “Banking Signing Authorities”. Interestingly enough, “authority” or a lack thereof seems to have been the essence of the lively discussion.
As mentioned in our previous post, a petition requesting the Province look into recent actions of Grimsby CAO Mr. Harry Schlange, is now gaining steam in the media. Local talk-radio station CKTB had an interview this morning with Grimsby resident Mark Kossek, who started the petition which has garnered nearly 1,000 signatures to date.
What happens when you step away from the computer for a day? When it comes to issues at the Town… a whole lot apparently! This day has been a media (and social media) smörgåsbord with the CAO, Harry Schlange and the Councillors who rally behind him… as the main course.

Much like voters cleaned house of local and Regional councils in October, Niagara Region’s acting CAO, Ron Tripp picked up the same broom and started getting rid of those that the electors could not sweep out.
While we originally would have normally called this post “Notes: Council – October 15, 2018”, the night’s events were quite heavy (handed) on the topic of the Town’s hydro companies, their financials and “secret” meetings. As such, we thought it qualified more as part of our “Hydro Files” series.
Our friends over at A Better Niagara will be hosting a citizens rally ahead of April 12th’s Regional Council Meeting. Besides the general malaise seemingly affecting Regional Council, they also want to focus on the questionable hiring of the Region’s CAO.
If you are concerned about proper governance in Niagara, we encourage you to attend.
The rally will take place at 6:00 PM, ahead of the 6:30 PM meeting at:
Niagara Region Headquarters, Campbell West
1815 Sir Isaac Brock Way,
Representing the citizens of Grimsby to ensure that the Town’s planning for intensification results in responsible growth while preserving the majesty of the escarpment and natural areas, the Lake Ontario waterfront, the small town charm, character and history, and the friendly nature of its people.
