Another two month wait for the Electors of Prince Edward County for a hearing on whether ward boundaries should be changed.
The citizens’ group asked the Ontario Municipal Board to make a ruling yesterday, rather than wait for an O-M-B session planned for November..
However, the meeting chairperson, K-J Hussey, felt she had no jurisdiction to allow that, and ruled against the motion.
Electors co-chair Jim McPherson says the County could have saved tens of thousands of dollars in legal expenses had there been a decision yesterday. County Council prefers to hold a referendum during next year’s municipal election on the issue.
