  • The second was Deputy-Mayor Sally Martyn to be appointed to the board of the Catfish Creek Conservation Authority.
  • The Third was to reaffirm Council as the Committee of the Whole concerning Personnel.

New Business

Harold Winkworth commented on the subjects of Fire Hydrants and Crosswalks. A problem exists with people parking closer than three meters from a Fire Hydrant creating a safety hazard. The Fire Chief suggested that the Fire Prevention Officer become a Provincial Offences Officer as well. He also had concerns that the Crosswalk by Foodland has signage only from one direction, and wondered if this met current safety legislation. Lloyd Perrin commented that this was a County Road and it is their responsibility for signage, but that he would make an inquiry to County and take direction from them.

Lloyd Perrin also gave an update on Pump Station 52 that excavation has started in the open section of Carlow Road and by Friday hopefully into the Carlow - Bridge intersection. That part of the Carlow - Bridge intersection will be closed for weekend and the detour signs will be up, and that if all goes well could be all finished by Thanksgiving.

Sally Martyn commented that the Carolian Forest Festival is a four day event that teaches grade 6 and 7 students the importance of the Carolinian Life Zone, forest ecosystems, species at risk, stewardship and conservation, and climate change through hands-on, interactive activities linked to the Ontario Curriculum. The goal of the Festival is to allow students to connect and relate to their local natural environment while motivating behavioural changes and encouraging students to become good land stewards. The Carolinian Forest Festival will be held from October 3-6, 2017 at Springwater Conservation Area.
