Sunday April 27, 2008

A busy week but the outside weather is delightful so I will keep this short.

Monday will feature an update by our area’s Physician Recruitment group. It takes place at the Georgian Manor in Penetanguishene at noon.

Then for Monday evening you have a real choice. At 7pm Dr. Kevin Smith will update our local hospital situation. That will happen at Penetanguishene Secondary School, 51 Dunlop Street. Also at 7pm is our monthly Council Meeting (“Deputation Only”). Some of the more interesting items on the Town agenda are:
- a final decision by Council on whether it will contribute to the new Huronia Players theatre parking lot (not quite over yet)
- a decision will be made on funding a heritage assessment of the Drummond Wall (on Fuller Ave.)
- this summer look for an $8 million renovation of our Wal-Mart; plus Donalda will go under the shovel for new sewers
- we should pass a by-law recognizing Ms. Andrea Fry as our new Town Clerk

The Ontario Arts Council will be in Town on Thursday at 7pm at the Carriage House Gallery to speak to all artists about funding and sponsorships.

Work should start on King Street this week to install the new nautically themed street lights. This is a joint project of the downtown Business Improvement Area and the Town and should take 3 to 4 weeks to complete. It will look great when it’s finished.
