Sunday May 22, 2011

Ladies and Gentlemen

Our summer season started with a bang –literally.  The first annual Shakedown Regatta complete with cannon fire is now in the books. Our Town is open for summer.

Council starts the shortened week with a meeting at the newly renovated Town Hall - your chance to come out and see the new premises. The evening will also feature the color of the Penetanguishene Kings, as your Council makes good on its bet with Mayor Marshall. On the agenda:
            - a presentation to the OPP recognizing their assistance during last year’s tornado event
            - a Public Meeting addressing:
                        - naming of the new Reid Ct.(by Shoppers Drug Mart)
                        - re-naming a road in the Tiffin by the Bay subdivision
                        - removal of the holding symbol from a property on Sumac Lane
- a decision on whether our taxis will go with meters or stay with the zone system.
- a discussion and direction on how we will work with Penetanguishene to achieve greater efficiencies (Urban Growth Node )
- a decision by Council on the next steps with our Employment Area Policy Review.

That’s it until Friday May 27th when the spade work is set to begin for our first Community Garden.  This major step towards local foods will be located in Little Lake Park, just behind the volleyball courts. I hope to be down there digging about .  See you there.

The weekend:
- if you are a youngster and have always wanted to fly a plane, the COPA For Kids event is taking place on Saturday May 28th with a rain date of Sunday May 29th, at Huronia Municipal Airport.  The information brochure, waiver and registration forms and COPA For Kids certificates can be downloaded from the COPA For Kids website at or call John Smith, Huronia Municipal Airport 705 526 8086
