Mississauga News - July 6, 2010 - Letter by Alex Coote, Mississauga
Was it legal?
Mark Goldstein’s letter (June 30) extols the value of the Mississauga judicial inquiry in identifying senior city officials’ “failure to protect the city’s interests” in the sale involving Enersource.
It would seem the question remains to be answered: Is a City document of sale, not approved by Council, and signed by the City manager and mayor, legal?
If so, then the important and essential point for Council is to introduce some administrative control over such officials before any more of the City’s assets disappear contrary to their policy and without their knowledge. It took four years for the terms of sale of Enersource to come to light.
As Goldstein states, “the optics are bad.” Relying on officials to maintain the interests of the City on a voluntary basis without proper administrative controls is not without risk.
