Sunday March 7, 2010

Ladies and Gentlemen

A-Channel interviewed Midland Woods Marine today and they said put away the snowmobiles, time to think boating. Has winter really left the area?

Council is hard at work this week. We start at 6:00 pm on Monday the 8th with a Special Meeting of Council (You May Not Speak) It will discuss three items including the use of the Wilson Road allowance as an attenuation zone for leachate from a nearby landfill.

At 7:00 pm on Monday is the regular Committee meeting (Written Input Only). A very long agenda with some pretty contentious items. The agenda will include:
- A proposed taxi by-law
o taxi cabs cannot be more than 5 years old
o meters will be mandatory
- An updated downtown parking by-law
o rates will go up to 75c an hour
o pay and display at the Town Dock lot
- A vote on the heavy garbage voucher system for the Town
- An update to our Town procedural by-law. Normally as dry as dust but this one contains some interesting items including:
o Councillors can talk for at most ten minutes on a matter
o Councillors can only speak once on the same question
o Council meetings must stop at 11 pm.
- Party on the Dock is proposed to return on June 11

Georgian Valley Project’s second public meeting is on Tuesday March 9th at 7:00 pm at the Horseshoe Resort, Highlands Golf Course Clubhouse.

On Thursday the 11th at 7:00 pm is the Town Poverty Committee – agenda content to be determined.
