There was happiness and bitterness at a meeting of Stirling-Rawdon council last night.
About 20 people left happy that council listened to their concerns about safety, and will employ 3 school crossing guards at the new Stirling Public in September. Council had planned to have just one guard.
However, other members of the public expressed anger about what they see as a lack of transparency in the way Stirling-Rawdon council does its business.
One man asked that more written information be made available to the public at meetings, and Mayor Rodney Cooney said council would discuss changing a policy to allow that in the very near future.
Another man complained about lack of police visibility and unsightly weeds on municipal property in Stirling.
