Grimsby transit pilot nudged to 2019 By Mike Williscraft NewsNow After a lengthy presentation regarding a proposed transit program for the Town of Grimsby, its Finance and Administration Committee opted Monday to recommend shelving any start up until 2019. Uncertainty on direction, adminis-

trative structure and cost all played a key part in the decision, said committee chair, Ald. Carolyn Mullins. Citing study findings that 84 per cent of residents support the notion of a transit system and 63 per cent confirming a tax increase of $20-$25 would be appropriate, Mullins said she does not know the “reality” of a $100-

plus increase for transit would sit with taxpayers. “I just don’t know how we would do it. The cost is enormous,” said Mullins. “In the end, we agreed to seek more information on a one-bus system and that could be part of the 2019 budget. Mullins added, with council starting

TRANSIT

From Page 1 its budget process looking at about a 34 per cent increase, considering any initiative for 2018 is not an option. “Being an election year, we thought it was a good idea to put this matter in the hands of the new council,” said Mullins. As well, Mullins noted that by standing pat, Grimsby will have an opportunity to see how things transpire with Town of Lincoln’s transit pilot which launched Monday. “We would charge a fee,” said Mullins of Grimsby’s discussions on a possible fare, not-

ing Lincoln opted to make the service free. “A free service would create false expectations from the start. Then discussion of a toonie (would arise) and that wouldn’t offset much in the way of cost.” Mullins said have a charge from the getgo is important to set the right tone. “If we go forward, you (residents) are going to have to pay to ride the bus,” said Mullins. There were also questions of who would administer the service, noting that staff are currently “overworked”, so taking on a transit service

would mean “more staff, once again.” As well, there is also some detail to be ironed out regarding what Niagara Region’s connection to Grimsby will look like. Uber could also play a part - as it has in Innisfil north of Toronto with success - in helping create a successful, efficient model. “There was a lot of information Monday and, yikes, it would be nice to have public transit, but how can we pay for it,” said Mullins. The Finance committee recommendation will come to council next Monday, Nov. 20 for approval.

An important update on the latest announcement from the Federal Government on the new mortgage qualifier “Stress Test” As of January 1st, 2018, all mortgage applications will be subject to some form of “Stress Test” qualifier; • All new insured mortgage applications will continue to be qualified at the Bank of Canada Benchmark rate (4.99% as of October 30, 2017, subject to change without notice), and a 25-year amortization; • All new uninsured mortgage applications will be qualified at the greater of a) the mortgage contract rate + 2%, and b) the Bank of Canada Benchmark rate in effect at time of application. What does this mean for you? For those homeowners with substantial credit-card or other highinterest-rate debt, the urgency is real. One can expect that all refinance options will be severely limited by this “Plus 2% Stress Test”. If you are planning to apply for a mortgage after January 1st, 2018, for the purpose of buying a home, or refinancing your current home, I strongly encourage you to consult with me now, to determine how this “Plus 2% Stress Test” qualification may affect your future borrowing ability. If you have above-average debt-ratios, you will definitely be affected. More importantly, if you expect your household income to substantially decrease in the coming years, due to retirement or some other change in your employment, then it may be advisable to set up any new mortgage and/or home equity line of credit now - before your income level drops. If you’d like more information, please call me. I’d be happy to provide you with a quick assessment to determine how you will be affected by this latest effort of the Federal Government to control consumer debt levels. Don’t let this latest round of Government regulation catch you off guard!

Lincoln launch ULinc Lincoln’s new public transit pilot program, uLinc, ;aunched Monday, Nov. 13 with the first pick-up at the Fleming Centre at 7:30 a.m. The new, free, transit system aims to move residents and visitors across Lincoln. The pilot is a year-long program that will see an accessible bus for 16 service the municipality. “Council heard the need from the community to develop a transit system to move people for work, to gain access to services and retail, and to improve quality of life for those without reliable transportation,” said Mayor Sandra Easton. Additional features of the bus include space for two wheelchairs, a bike rack on the front (for two bicycles), and storage space for portable grocery carts and walkers. The pilot includes three routes which run from Monday to Friday during the

winter months, starting early in the morning and finishing early in the evening. A spring/summer schedule will be in place from May-October of 2018. The transit hub is at the Fleming Centre. While the routes are within Lincoln, a key connection is a stop at the GO bus stop in Beamsville enabling residents to travel outside of Lincoln. As part of the pilot, the routes and schedule will be reviewed to ensure the system in best meeting the needs of the riders. Bus stops are located throughout town with a sign, bench and garbage can. As a pilot, there are no shelters or permanent infrastructure. Residents are reminded the bus will be stopping on the road in some locations and request motorists use caution while riders are getting on and off the bus.

Christmas comes early

Regulars at Foundation of Resources for Teens’ (FORT) Grimsby location got a nice surprise when Grimsby Firefighters Association president Darryl Hersics, right, and firefighter Andy Medwid dropped by with a donation - a new (circa 1933) pool table. FORT executive director Beth Shaw accepted the donation on behalf of the organization.

A self-serving time out Ok, people, once in a while it is good to just step back and take an honest assessment of what you are trying to do, no rose coloured glasses. So this week, with a perky little 24-page paper staring at you, good reader, it is a pretty good week to go through that exercise. What we couldn’t do with 24 pages every week. That would be awesome for us and, we think, for the communities we serve. Now there are economic realities to it. Not only do our highly supportive businesses have a finite budget with which to promote their businesses, but we are also in an environment with a competitor that will sell an ad for a fraction of a real sales rate. It must be working for them since they have now closed their Grimsby office every afternoon, right? With this edition, we have hard news, tons of photos, features, community support, a shop local event and a boat load more with every scrap of content local to you, good reader. Quite honestly, we cannot do any better and we hope you enjoy this read as much as we did putting it together. M.W.

No decision right decision on transit The best decision - although it still has to be approved next Monday - Grimsby council could make this year may be to make no decision on the proposed transit system. Cutting to the chase, Grimsby’s Finance and Administration Committee approved a recommendation to put off considering any new transit structure - pilot or otherwise - until 2019. While this is definitely a flinch on the part of council as they have been pummelled by projected costs - many of the significant variety - stepping aside from the “financial disaster bus” steaming down the road toward them is a best case scenario for the town. With massive hiring trends not ending this year, serious pressure to get its IT infrastructure up to a standard of something from this decade and a host of other challenges, council has little choice. Having sat through those lengthy transit presentations over the last many months and seeing more questions at the end of the sessions than when they started, it has been a scary prospect that council may press on just to create the illusion of accomplishing something for the sake or some level of movement on the file. This kind of superficial thinking is what has gotten this group in such financial hot water in the first place. Over the last three councils an apparent disregard for the core needs of some departments has created a financial vacuum the likes of which this municipality has never seen. When you look at the huge influx of dough from upswings in market value

MIKE WILLISCRAFT assessments for the community - the tax dollars go up without council having to say taxes themselves were raised, and the windfall from the Peach King Centre debenture which was never taken out of the tax mix as promised, council has enjoyed considerable financial gains and yet the Town is still behind the eight ball. But the Town is pretty. Things look good. Just don’t scratch below the surface. Leaving a decision as to a direction for the transit initiative to the next council is both a blessing and a curse. Hopefully, Grimsby ends up with a new council that is not afraid to stand up for its constituents, fights for what is right and does not acquiesce when challenged. Challenges, questions, need for more detail should be hallmarks of a council - right up there with transparency, communication and openness. That is not this council. We’re a year out from an election and there is lots of talk of who might run for what. Some of what I have heard would be considered a scary prospect at best, but it is hoped some good candidates come out of the woodwork to get things

back on a positive track. But to stick with the prospect for a Grimsby transit system of any kind, Grimsby cannot afford to consider anything for 3-4 years minimum. When you look at what is considered a “must” for next year’s budget, knowing some items are being fudged into 2019 because they don’t have a snowballs chance for 2018 - liked delayed hirings to create the illusion of a lessoned financial impact the current dust we know about won’t settle until 2020, if then. ****** I had a good friend pop into my office Tuesday with a dilemma with which he was looking for some help. John Hayes, it seems, bought two sweet seats for the Saturday, Dec. 2 showing of Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at Theatre Aquarius. His cost was just over $200. The seats are Row P for the 7 p.m. show. Long story short, he cannot attend now. He wants to see some good come from them, so I have them in hand and will sell them for a donation with all proceeds going directly to FORT at John’s request. So call or text my cell: 289-442-4244. They will go to the highest bidder by noon next Tuesday, Nov. 21 and I will put the result in this space next week. If someone wants to offer $200 right off, they will go to that person immediately. The idea is not to run an auction, but to take a simple circumstance and make some good come from it. Thanks, looking forward to those bids!

Ongoing coverage appreciated: reader Dear Editor, I must say I usually find your opinions poignant, although I don’t always agree, and last week was no different. You mentioned about not being able to “unsee” things when it comes to some of the antics at the Town of Grimsby. I get that that situation is a mess. There are so many issues I am not going to single one out. They have been hashed and rehashed. My purpose is urge you to press on. It is easy to see your frustration, but I can tell you, a great many people in Grimsby (and I am sure West Lincoln although I do not live there) greatly appreciate you shedding light on issues which would have never seen the light of day otherwise. Otherwise, these characters would have no level of accountability whatsoever, such as that enjoyed by Grimsby hydro offi-

Letter cials who conveniently use the guise of the utility being a private company to keep all under a collective rug. Funny, Niagara-onthe-Lake’s hydro (as one example) puts everything online and operates very publicly.

Boy, we could use some of that openness! But Grimsby’s issues go behind hydro and we need to know what is happening. This transit issue, wow, in Town of Grimsby’s hands I can see that getting expensive fast. We don’t need that. Stephen Owen Grimsby
