Township must freeze budget

Editor: I read the Jan. 24 Times story on the Township 2012 budget with interest.

I believe John Cummins has it right, with  his stance that municipal budgets be cut by one per cent — or at least freeze it.

Relying on a casino, as Langley City does, is a crutch.

The Township needs to move forward and create a cohesive spending plan and provide balance to a community which has great variances. Councillors must sharpen their pencils.
