Ladies and Gentlemen

Lots of people are now out walking, biking and enjoying spring. We definitely live in one of the most beautiful parts of the universe.

The week starts on Sunday April 25th at 9:00 am. The Midland Area Reading Council is holding its semi-annual book sale at the King Street Honda.

Monday the 26th will be a busy day for Council. A closed meeting starts at 6:00 pm. Then at 7:00 pm is Council (Deputation Only). The long agenda includes:
- A deputation and by-law on the proposed Farmers Market. Still a few issues to be worked out.
- We then go into a Public Meeting (You May Speak). The Public Meeting will review two by-laws:
o By-law controls for Hawkers. Peddlers, Farmer’s Markets etc.
o Procedural by-law where we will decide on how your Council should conduct its business
Back to the regular meeting…..:
- Review of the Heritage Committee’s recommendation on the demolition of the Roxy theatre to make way for the new Cultural Centre
- Discussion of the agreement between the Town and the developer respecting the Drummond Wall
- A by-law will be tabled to permit secondary suites and their control registry. Still a few issues on “entry to property” and definition of “occupier” to be worked out
- We will be told who is on the proposed Board for Directors for the new Cultural Centre.
- A by-law proposing that the Towns of Midland and Penetanguishene share building officials
- We will learn about two major building contracts for 2010:

Later in the week;
- Midland Area Reading Council will host its appreciation Dinner on Thursday April 29th

And in closing, a reception is being held at Town Hall on Friday the 30th between 3:00 and 5:00 pm to honor Doug Baker on the occasion of his retirement. Please come and wish him well.
