Ladies and Gentlemen

The Thanksgiving turkey is cooked and --- what is that ---- snow on the window?

A short week and a busy one. Tuesday October 13th starts out with a closed meeting at 6:00 pm at the Town (You may Not Attend). Then at 7:00 pm is the regular Committee meeting (Written Input). Lots of small items:
- Discussion to adjust the traffic signal timing at Yonge and King – seems some people are getting frustrated.
- Tender for paving the Tiffin Trail from the end of the Captain’s Cove area to the CN bridge, this fall.
- A $30,000 natural playground at Mac McAllen Park. (A natural playground includes rocks and logs)
- A proposal for a dog park in Midland
And finally Bryan Peter will tell us about a cruise ship company that is thinking of using Midland as a base of summer operations.

On Wednesday morning at 9:00 am at Midhurst, County Council’s Corporate Services Committee will discuss our future waste options – landfill, incineration or possibly Zero Waste. Later that Wednesday the Midland Police will be holding a public demonstration in community justice. Called “Take Back the Wall” it will have a number of youngsters removing the graffiti from the wall next to Edwards Mall. Starts at 3:00 pm.

On Friday October 16th, the YMCA will hold its Poverty Pledge ceremony at 12:30 pm.
Saturday October 17th will feature the Murals Symposium at the Best Western. It includes a tour of our murals conducted by our own Bill Smith.

And finally, the corporation wanting to build the new LCBO on Cranston Crescent has stopped its appeal to the OMB. We get to keep our existing LCBO.
