When it comes to helping others, Puslinch councillors believe in making their own personal donations rather than using tax dollars.
The May 18 discussion followed correspondence from the Association of Municipalities of Ontario and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.
Both sought municipal assistance to help out Alberta’s Fort McMurray community in the wake of the devastating fire which forced 80,000 people to leave their homes.
Mayor Dennis Lever said after a similar past request, councillors went around the horseshoe for a collection.
Lever noted both he and his wife had already made donations to the Red Cross.
