Contact UsSydenham Water Project Ready to Rolland other notes from Council
by Wilma Kenny
Peter Stewart had earlier told the Frontenac News that he planned to speak to council on behalf of the Sydenham Safe Water Association, reiterating their concern about proceeding on the basis of an error-riddled engineering report. However, Stewart set his presentation aside, saying to Council that he had been told at the Township Water Steering Committee earlier in the day that "Council had made their decision, and nothing he might say that night would change it." Accusing Council of unprofessional behaviour, Stewart left the meeting.
Council passed a resolution to sign contracts with Galcon Marine (water intake), Landmark Structures (elevated water storage), J.C.Sulphur Construction (water treatment plant) and Len Corcoran Excavating (distribution system). Only Councillor Roos was opposed.
Villagers will learn details about individual cost estimates and financing options at an Open House on April 7. Construction is expected to begin May 1st.
