Ladies and Gentlemen

How quickly we turn to fall, even though summer has made a few valiant last attempts to return to Midland.

Your Council starts its fall meetings with an in camera meeting at 6:30 pm on Monday September 27th. Then at 7:00 pm in the NSSRC is the regular Council Meeting (Deputation Only). This is the last Council meeting before the election. Likely a long but non-contentious evening including:
- a presentation on the upcoming (2015) Champlain celebrations
- a further request by the Midland Safe Communities program for funding
- acceptance of the Town’s Accessibility Plan update

On Tuesday September 28th starting at 11:00 am, Community Link will be representing a discussion of the services available for seniors in our community. The presentation takes place in the Askennonia room at NSSRC. A lunch is provided.

Thursday September 30th at 5:30 pm will see our second 2011 budget discussion. This meeting at the NSSRC will focus on the operating budget. The operations budget typically represents 85% of your Town’s expenditures.

And finally a political note. On Wednesday September 29th at 8:00 pm the Rogers Local Politically Speaking show will feature a discussion between the incumbent mayor and your editor. Should make for some interesting viewing.
