Good evening everyone. Tonight marks the first full meeting of Council. Only a few things on the agenda tonight! I’ve also started posting some Live Videos of various things taking place in the town. One of the things our Civic Engagement Committee will likely be looking at is live streaming council meetings themselves as well!
Girl Guide Award Presentations
Zoning By-Law Change
Letter of support for W.I.L.D standards
Paperless Meeting Management Software
Tender – Park Upgrades (Patricia Dr and Bridgedale)
Canada’s Clean Water & Wastewater fund application
1. Mayor Seamans awarded the Lady Baden-Powell Challenge Girl Guide Award to Kennedy Burrell, Sarah Burtt, Kaitlyn Dempsey, Abby Earle, Madison MacDonald and Sophie O’Pray!
2. Council heard a request on behalf of Clayton Developments to rezone PID# 05104658 from R3 (Multiple Unit Dwelling) to RM (Residential Mix). Essentially, due to changes in the market, they no longer wish to build a multi-unit complex but rather, some semi-detached units. Council approved the motion. Council passed a resolution to proceed with a public hearing and to request the written views of the P.A.C.
3. Council received a letter from Bernard Beukeveld requesting that the town write a letter expressing concerns with a lack of standards for regulations of Key Trains and Key Routes including Wheel Indicator Load Detectors (W.I.L.D). Council gave direction for staff to draft and send the letter.
4. Summer Hours: Council approved the summer hour’s schedule wherein Council will meet just once per month beginning at 4:00pm.
5. Council awarded a tender for Paperless Management Software to eScribe in the amount of $6,968 (plus HST). Council is already paperless for Council packages and most correspondence but this software provide us with meeting management software online as well.
6. Council awarded a tender for renovations to Patricia Drive playground and Bridgedale Park to J.K Fraser & Son Ltd in the amount of $124,701.65 (plus HST). Notification will be sent to residents shortly. Patricia Drive park will be getting some upgrades while Bridgedale will basically getting a complete overhaul!
7. Council approved a donation to the ALS Walk in the amount of $100. Council approved a donation for the “Perfect Swim” fundraiser for CMHA for $500.
8. In an effort to offset some costs associated with addressing our infrastructure deficit and based on the recommendation from Director Shane Thomson, Council passed a resolution to apply for funding through the Canada’s Clean Water & Wastewater Fund.
