Letter: Reduce number of councillors to save money

Dear editor:

I am writing further to The Lake Report's front-page story, "Town of NOTL needs to find additional revenue sources: Bisback," published on Feb. 4.

Coun. Allan Bisback, here is an idea: Let's reduce the number of  town councillors to five from eight.

Just what is it that eight councillors do that five can't?

Toronto has 25 councillors for a population of a few million.

Our ratio works out to about one councillor for every 1,000 people of voting age.
