Ladies and Gentlemen

Just back from the Elmvale Maple Syrup Festival. (It felt more like the Winter Carnival).  I am beginning to regret having put my dahlias out so early.

The week starts with a Special Meeting of Council on Monday April 18 at in the Library Assembly Room. This will be a Public Meeting to discuss the proposed user pay (bag tag) system for our garbage. This is your chance to tell Council what our garbage fee system should look like. You are most welcome to participate.

Tuesday April 19th will see the Zero Waste Simcoe AGM.  The meeting will feature Don Gordon (Atlas Block) telling us about their innovative LEED products. Plus it will discuss the ZWS initiative to make waste part of the upcoming provincial election. The meeting is at at the YMCA building off of
Elizabeth Street
, opposite the library. All are welcome.

On Wednesday April 20th everyone in Simcoe County is invited to a special meeting at the County Council chamber starting at . This informational presentation will tell you about the County’s plan for your waste over the next decade. 

Then at Out of the Cold marks its season end with a pot luck dinner for all the volunteers. Another good year for these selfless individuals who look after the homeless in our midst.

On Thursday April 21st I Georgian College will hold a meeting to put the final touches on their Skilled Trades Expo slated for May. Over 450 students from all over Simcoe County will come to Midland to see our excellent campus and Town.  More information to come.
