The Village is a busy place this morning. In addition to the birds and critters, Desi and I met up with lots of people on our walk. It is the quintessential winter morning – fresh snow, sunshine & blue sky and just below 0 degrees. I want to send a big shout out to Craig, Jamie and the rest of the crew – roads and sidewalks are in great shape. Thank you from all of us who head out every morning for fresh air and exercise.
Thank you to everyone who attended the Town Hall meeting on Thursday night to share with Council your concerns about the current snow removal process and suggestions for changes to the by-law and additions to the next snow removal contract. Your comments were well thought out and on point. I very much appreciate your willingness to raise the issues publicly.
Your suggestions will be seriously considered by Council over the next few months as we prepare the tender for the next contract and factor any additional costs into the 2017 draft budget this fall.
Attention business owners, snow plow operators, residents and other concerned community members.
The most recent snow storm and its clean up has highlighted the need to hold an open forum where everyone can have their say about snow removal. Roads, sidewalks, snow banks – they all require discussion. Council wants to hear from you. On Thursday, February 25 from 5:30-7:00 pm, mayor and council will be hosting a Town Hall meeting. Anyone wishing to share their concerns or perspective will be given the opportunity.
Within the next year, Council will be making changes to the existing snow removal by-law. The current contract for snow removal expires April 2017 and the village will be putting out a tender in 2016. The information that is shared on Thursday will assist us in our deliberations.
Please mark the date and time on our calendar – come to the Town Hall meeting and have your say!
