Ladies and Gentlemen

I traded springtime in Australia for autumn in Midland. But its good to be home.

Monday October 24th starts early with the Midland Police Service making a final presentation to the Penetanguishene Policing Review group. The decision to pursue a joint force or not should be made by the Penentanguishene Council on Wednesday (Midland is already fully behind the idea)

Then Monday evening at in the Town Hall is the Council meeting. It has the potential to be a long meeting with four scheduled deputations. Agenda items include:
-          decision on the heritage windows at the Animal Hospital
-          comments on the potential shoreline structures by-law

Tuesday October 25th at is County Council in Midhurst. County Council will be deciding on a number of matters including changes to heavy waste pick-up for Midland and whether to collect waste from small business and merchants.

Wednesday October 26th sees SHARE presenting an information session on solar energy projects at the library, at .  If you are interested in installing a solar energy system, this will be a great source of practical information. Also that evening at the Community Service Department will host a public meeting on recreation related user fees. The good news is that only a few fees will be increasing.

Thursday October 27th is another public meeting, this one dealing with the Town’s Transportation Master Plan. This plan follows from a review of road traffic throughout the Town and will make recommendations on topics such as road modifications and parking restrictions. You can see the transportation report at  - click Town of Midland Transportation Master Plan.

And if you are in Town Hall on Friday and you see people dressed in pink, its for our Breast Cancer fundraiser. Best chili in Town being served for lunch.
