Issues: 1) Tax Levy: In 2016 Milton Council voted to get rural residents paying the same rate as their urban counterparts. This resulted in an increase of approximately $25.61/ $100,000. With no sidewalks, or transit, and little in the way of the leisure services this raises the question of value for money.
2) Transit: A sore point for many residents. Milton Transit’s 62 bus that ran from Milton to Campbellville was cancelled due to ridership numbers after a three month trial.
3) Representation: Late last year rural residents tried to get permission to form a rural residents advisory committee. They were denied.
Candidates as of July 29:
