Sunday December 12, 2010

Ladies and Gentlemen

The snow is coming down soft and sticky. You have to love the beauty of a fresh snowfall. It’s the six months afterwards that test you.

At on Monday December 13th there will be an announcement of a new partnership between the Mental Health Centre in Pentanguishene and the University of Toronto. An important step for our area. If you plan on attending call Ms. Stewart at 549-3181 x2073.

At that Monday evening at the NSSRC your new Council will meet for a series of meetings. The first meeting is to review the Water and Sewer Rate Study Update. (Speak at discretion of Chair)  At it’s the General Committee meeting. (Written Comment Only). A lengthy agenda with a range of topics:
-          Discussion of allowing heavy trucks on
Fuller Ave.
-          Review of accessibility preparations for voters in our recent election
-          Launch of Midland’s Cultural and Recreational planning exercise
Following that (about ) is a special meeting of Council to discuss appointments to the Police Services Board.

On Tuesday December the 14th County Council will hold its inauguration ceremony at .  You are most welcome to attend at the Midhurst Council chamber to meet your new County Councillors (Stephan Kramp and myself representing Midland) and find out who your new Warden will be.

Wednesday the 15th sees us right back to more meetings. At at the NSSRC we will enter a closed meeting to discuss contractual matters. Then at we will start our second budget meeting for the new Council. At the last meeting, Council agreed to set a Town budget somewhere between 2 and 3 %. At this meeting we will work with staff to identify how that will be accomplished. Should be a good discussion.

A little lighter for the remainder of the week;
            - Midland police retirees luncheon takes place at on Thursday the 16th
- The four northern municipalities kick off discussion on Friday as to how they cab work together to bring jobs and economic development to our area.

That’s it!  Please vote every day until Dec 31st  We need those hospital beds.
