Sunday Janaury 24, 2010

Ladies and Gentlemen

January 24th and they are calling for a high of 6 degrees and heavy rain…bring on the global warming debate.

A busy week. On Monday the 25th we start off with a closed meeting at 6:30 regarding a matter of litigation concerning the Town. Then at 7:00 it is Council (Deputation Only). A fairly long agenda including;
- a deputation on septage (sewage sludge) disposal
- a letter from the County suggesting a meeting on leachate monitoring at the North Simcoe Transfer Station (Later on there is a By-law to use the Midland boundary road allowance as a leachate attenuation zone.)
- a discussion on the use of Harbourview Dr. sidewalks by snowmobiles
- a comment on your Committee’s recommendation to expand the permitted uses for our industrial zoning category

Wednesday the 27th is a very special day. Our new Chief of Police Mike Osborne will be sworn in at Town Hall in a special ceremony scheduled for 6:00 pm. Then at 8:30 pm Council will be meeting in a special closed session to discuss a possible land acquisition.

Thursday the 28th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, Garfield Dunlop MPP is holding his pre-budget consultation at the Brooklea. If you wish to present it is suggested that you call Garfield’s office ahead of time to register.

On Saturday, a number of your Councilors will be headed to Toronto for a short conference on job creation is the green economy. Hopefully a number of good ideas will be generated for our own economy.

And finally another bus company has offered to fill the transportation gap left by Greyhound’s decision to terminate service to the Town in April .More developments to follow.
