A big crowd of business owners took Ward 5 councilors to task on Monday. A meeting was set up between the Simcoe candidates, local businesses, and the Downtown Simcoe BIA regarding the issues in Downtown Simcoe.
The talk of the HUB came up as well, with one sitting councilor suggesting that if it were to move to Downtown Simcoe that it could be a game changer.
Business Owner Les Anderson said that he’s not entirely convinced that a HUB in the heart of Simcoe would get rid of all their concerns.
Anderson said they asked a series of questions and then opened the floor for the candidates.
The conversation did get quite lively at times, but several issues were discussed with some possible solutions thrown out.
Ward 5 Candidates have the last public debate out of all the wards going on October 15th.
