Hi there! I hope you read my post from earlier today about the changes we can look forward to seeing over the next 20 years.
Here is a preview of the issues we will be discussing and voting on during this Wednesday’s Council meeting.
- We have a closed session at 5:30pm
- The normal Council meeting will start at 6pm
- We will hold Court of Revision to hear any concerns about the Watson Municipal Drain Extension proposed to be completed
- I am on this Court of Revision
- Middlesex Centre has won the EA Danby Award! This award is presented each year to a select number of municipalities “that demonstrate an initiative or a willingness to explore innovative techniques that produces tangible results related to the efficiency and effectiveness of the municipal corporation.”
- This award will be presented by Michelle Casavecchia-Somers, one of AMCTO’s Directors and she’s also the CAO/Clerk of Malahide Township (Aylmer region)
- We will also have a delegation from County Warden Marigay Wilkins, and CAO Bill Rayburn about the County’s priorities for 2019
- A resident is asking for a refund after multiple issues disrupted their rental of the Ilderton Community Centre last month
- The consent agenda has meeting minutes from the Upper Thames River Conservation Area and the Bluewater Recycling Association
- There is amended material for the official plan amendment Council approved earlier this year to allow the owners of 10037 Elviage Dr to convert this equine arena to a wedding/event venue
- The Ministry of Environment, Conservation, and Parks recently conducted an inspection of our water system; a few small deficiencies were noted, nothing major. Middlesex Centre was not able to round up 20 volunteers for lead testing, of which I was one of them. Staff wants to seek an exemption from this number of homes that need to be sampled.
- We have two drain improvements ready to proceed if they are approved
- Brian Lima, the Municipal Engineer, has reviewed Vision Zero and is ready to have staff endorse its principles! This is great news for us as we look to enhance safety for all residents across Middlesex Centre, and if approved this will start in May 2019.
- From the correspondence, I suspect the Ilderton BIA’s request to waive the rental fee for a municipal election debate will be approved. We already approved a similar waiver request from the Komoka-Kilworth Business Association for a debate at the Komoka Community Centre.
- Lastly, two by-laws will appear before Council related to Bella Lago in Komoka, and the Clear Skies (formerly Little Farm) development in Ilderton
That’s that! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please call 226-448-6774 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for reading!
