    I was reading on the Hawthorne Villager website that there is supposedly a Neighbourhood Watch program set up. I went to the Halton Watch site and contacted the people there and they said there isnt an official NW association for Milton. So what is it that Tony Lambert is talking about?

    He seems to be making up these associations out of thin air from his Taxpayers Association, phantom petitions for power plants and now this.

    Mike can you clear this up for us?

    Thinking the same thing reading through the thread as well. He claims to be an effective communicator but plans on sending a report to residents once per year on paper. Instead of posting the Neighbourhood Watch info on a site somewhere, he says “call me”.

    Seems odd to me why he doesnt use the internet like you and a few other councillors do.

    When is the police committee meeting again? I’d like to attend and possibly speak with the Halton Police to get an update on these endless burgleries. Hopefully they will catch them soon because its got people in our area on edge.

    Thanks Mike.

    The next meeting of the MCPC is on the 25th of January which should be located at the police station on Childs Drive. If it changes, i’ll let you know.

    During that meeting Im sure the representatives of the Halton Police will update the committee on the status of any investigations of car / property thefts that seem to be running wild in Milton these past few weeks.

    Again, the best defense against these thefts is to make sure your cars are locked, and doors are locked as well. Keep valueables out of sight and bring in your GPS’s, iPods and other tempting items from your vehicle.

    If you see any suspicious behaviour please contact the police directly.

    If you would like to contact Tony directly, you can send him an email tony@yourtownyourway.ca and Im sure he will get back to you.

    Mike
