Sunday MAy 11, 2008

And just when you thought you could ease quietly into Spring……it gets busy!

This Monday May 12th we Councillors will start off at 5:30 pm with a Closed Meeting at the Town to discuss contracts. Then at 6:00 pm the Midland Power Utility Commission will hold its Annual General Meeting at the Town (you may attend). And finally at 7:00 pm we get to the regular General Committee Meeting (“Written Comment”). It will be a busy one including:
- Discussion of a donation to Community Link for assisted transit
- A review of what should happen with the Drummond Wall
- A presentation of a plan to build 3 soccer fields by 2010
- A new policy to have the Town promote and support tourism events
- The announcement of draft terms for the new Trails Committee. It includes a proposal to have 6 civilian members.
(If you need further information on these items, please let me know.)

On Saturday May 17th the Midland Horticultural Society will be hosting its plant sale at the NSSRC. Also on Saturday, the Penetanguishene Town Dock will be the location of the commissioning of the new 32 foot OPP boat, the “Tom Coffin”. Penetanguishene will also be holding its Emergency Services Day event at that time.

Saturday May 31st; get ready for the Annual Kids Fishing Derby, 9am to 12 noon, at the Midland Town Dock.

On June 22nd expect a visit from a group of canoeists from Quebec City. They will be completing their 10 day voyage and will be in Midland to tell us about the Champlain 2008 celebrations.

And one last item that I would like you to consider, as it is important for our economic development. The County is running an online survey until the end of May asking residents to tell them about their internet access. What they hope to determine is what your problems are so they can get the industry to fix them. The internet is our highway for the next generation. Please let the County know we want to be connected. The survey can be accessed through or by calling 705-726-9300 extension 1092 for a telephone survey.
