Sunday September 21, 2008

Ladies and Gentlemen

How many of you went grocery shopping on Saturday and saw the Zero Waste Simcoe people promoting the use of cloth bags at the stores? The campaign is a first for Simcoe County and it started right here in Midland.

Your Council meets this Monday the 22nd at 7:00 pm (Deputation Only) at the Town. Lots of interesting items:
- A presentation will be made by the “All Charities Event” Committee about a major family event planned for next summer in Midland. As the name suggests the event will be backed by many of our local charities. More news to come.
- The County has advised us that they will be picking up Leaf and Yard Waste on April 27, 2009 and Metal Items on May 25, 2009. Bulky Item collection has been discontinued but we will likely get a $50 voucher if we take them to the Transfer Station.
- The newly formed Trails Committee will be bringing forward their first two recommendations:
o A bicycle lane on Highway 93 between Penetanguishene and Midland
o A snowmobile trail for the 2008/9 season along the Penetanguishene Road right-of-way between Yonge and Hugel
- And lastly, the motion to ban the sale of bottled water on Town premises should be discussed. Your Councilors have already received a lot of corporate lobbying on this matter. Should be interesting.

The Midland Area Reading Council holds its AGM at Honda on King Street this Wednesday the 24th at 7:00 pm. They need your support.

The Simcoe County District School Board and Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board are holding a public meeting on education development charges. That’s Tuesday September 30th at 7:00 at the Education Centre at 1170 Hwy. 26 in Midhurst.
