SouthFrontenac Council - July 3, 2007by Wilma Kenny

WASTE MANAGEMENT: Council approved terms of reference to provide guidance and direction to Guy Laporte of TSH, who has been retained to undertake a Waste Management Master Plan Study. It is intended that this study consider waste management both from the perspective of how it is presently being handled on an area rated basis and how it could be managed were the responsibility for waste management to rest with the Township as a whole, and make recommendations for long term planning. An earlier draft of these terms of reference had been rejected by Council, on the grounds that the question of bag tags was not being addressed in sufficient detail.

BRIDGE TENDERS: Tender was awarded to O. Bettschen Construction, a local firm and the lowest bidder, for Mitchell Creek Bridge: $346,843. CEO Burns was authorized to approve the tender award for Rutledge Road bridge, if necessary to expedite the construction process, as Council meets only once a month during summer. Tender will not be called until the environmental assessment is completed.
