In early 2008, Compton rejected a buyout offer from Thunder Bay Telephone for Kenora's municipally-owned telephone service provider, citing that an agreement in principle had already been reached to sell the system to Bell Aliant.
As mayor, Compton was instrumental in the decision to have the Ontario Provincial Police provide policing to Kenora, which resulted in the disbandment of the town police force in 2009. One of the factors in the decision was the increased focus of the OPP on traffic enforcement. Ironically, in March 2011, Compton was arrested by the OPP while driving in Kenora and charged with exceeding the alcohol limit.
