Sunday December 7, 2008

Christmas is fast approaching, so with lots to do this week I will keep it short.

Your busy Councillors will start off on Monday at 6:30 with a closed meeting. At 7pm you are invited to attend the regular General Committee meeting (Written Input Only). Some of the more interesting agenda items include:
- a recommendation to dissolve our Town’s Parking Authority
- further discussion of our bulky waste pick-up and leaf collection
- announcement that our Winterfest is set for February 6 and 7
The meeting will also receive a letter from Canada Post stating that they will not be delivering mail to homes in the following areas this winter because of a lack of safe sidewalks:
- Yonge at Hamelin
- Bay at Second
- Fourth at Victoria
- William at Bay, William at Yonge and William at Donalda

On Wednesday December 10th at 5:45 the Town will have its third and last scheduled budget deliberation (You May Not Speak). At last review we were at 2.9% for the Town. If you wish to make comment, please contact your Councillor.

On Thursday December 11th from 1:30 to 3:30 you are invited to a “25 in 5” strategy session to discuss how to reduce poverty in Ontario. The meeting is co-hosted by the County of Simcoe and will take place in their Council chambers in Midhurst.

And lastly this Friday at 11 am the Midland Area Reading Council will be hosting their annual Christmas Open House at their offices on Fourth Street. Please drop by and say hello.
