by Wilma Kenny

Northern Allowance?

At council’s request, CAO Burns distributed a comparison of elected officials’ 2007 salaries in the Frontenacs:

Frontenac Islands Mayor: $5,320, councilors: $2,060

South Frontenac Mayor: $15,620, councilors: $9,372

Central Frontenac Mayor: $15,913, councilors: $11,140

North Frontenac Mayor: $19,000, councilors: $13,700

Another Small Step Toward the "A-Word"

South Frontenac Recreation Committee has begun the process of bringing together representatives from the district swim programs to see if there might be ways of working together to harmonize the three programs.

Terry Shea, Land O’ Lakes director, advised council that in addition to their popular visitor guide and area maps (70,000 distributed annually), this year they are also publishing a City Guide to Rural Adventures, targeted at tourists staying in hotels in the Kingston area. The goal is to encourage visitors to Kingston and the 401 corridor to stay longer, and explore some of the surrounding area.

Septic Re-inspection Program to Continue

Council approved awarding a contract to KFL&A Health Unit to undertake 200 to 300 septic inspections of shoreline properties on Knowlton and Bobs Lakes in 2007. They also approved investigating the possibility of requesting pump-outs of septic tanks whenever lakefront properties are sold.

New Role for CAO Burns

Council approved Gord Burns’ authorization to perform civil marriage ceremonies. Burns assured council that if any requests came forward, they would be honoured outside regular business hours, so there would be no direct costs to the township.
