Ladies and Gentlemen

The weather is gorgeous and the Town is getting into that “its summertime” frame of mind. A little bit of something for everyone this week.

First of all a comment on two items from last week:
1) On Wednesday last your Council created a new Poverty committee. Made up of Council and civilian members the Committee will develop a made-in-Midland poverty strategy. Look for more information in the fall.
2) On Thursday came news that the Council of Canadians may take Simcoe County to court over Site 41. This issue has important implications for our water and what we will do with our waste.

On Monday June 15th at 6:00 pm the Town will receive the annual financial report from our hydro utility, MPUC (Speak at Discretion of Chair). Your chance to find out more about your Town-owned utility. Following that at 7:30 pm Council will review the submissions from the recent “Town Logo Contest”. Midland may soon have a whole new look.

Tuesday June 16th sees a special meeting at 7:00 pm at the Simcoe County Council Chambers in Midhurst about locally grown food. The Food Partners Alliance of Simcoe County will tell us how we can gain better access to locally grown foods.

Thursday the 18th starting at 2:00 pm and then again at 6;00 pm the Town will hold its Official Plan Open House at the North Simcoe Sports and Recreation Centre. Come out and see how the Town is planning your future.

Friday - get ready to party. If you are down on the Town dock at 11:30 am you can join the Chamber of Commerce for its annual BBQ. And then at 7:00 pm its our annual Party on the Dock.

Welcome to summer.
