Residents clearly indicated that they were happy with the way the town was heading. The 2018 Oakville Town Council looks pretty much like it did before the election with a couple of exceptions. Town Council manages a yearly budget in excess of $300 million. Topics that were top of mind with voters: Saving Glen Abbey Golf Course, Downtown Oakville Development, and how the sale of Cannabis will be handled.

    That does not show Oakville residents being clearly happy. The mayoral fight and decrease in advantage for Burton show a very divided and discontent Oakville. Those eligible to vote who did was less than 40%, which indicates a complete apathy and feeling of ‘fait accompli’ in council matters.

  2. Joanne says:

    No…Glen Abbey golf course is not a major concern for all of Oakville. neither is Downtown a priority…Speers Rd is. It has been rough with broken pavement for many years… time for it to be repaved?
    Agree with Jop …Mayor is not effective t all.Some of the councillors have not achieved anything of significance to date. Time for a change but unfortunately apathy wins the day

  3. June says:

    What I found, while going door-to-door, was that people felt that council wasn’t listening to them. A lot of projects were approved with little consideration of the wishes of the neighbours and, while Oakville has been labelled the best place to live, a lot of people feel left behind or squeezed out by “progress”. Transit and affordable housing/rentals need to be addressed and some of the council needs to get out and listen for a change. (Some councilors are excellent).
