A request from the Kids Help Phone Line for a donation of $500 was deferred to next year’s budget deliberations. Information provided by Kids Help indicated that in 2007, 729 contacts were made to them by children and youth from the Cloyne, Flinton, Denbigh and Northbrook areas.

Addington Highlands and North Frontenac Township need to pass “mirror bylaws” in order to erect stop signs on the Skootamatta Lake Road where it intersects the Hughes Landing Road. AH passed its bylaw on Monday.
Council passed a bylaw to establish township policy on stopping up and selling road allowances leading to water. In Addington Highlands, it was theoretically possible for a person to purchase the shore road allowance in front of someone else’s property. The new bylaw prevents that scenario.
Fritz and Ursula Nussberger have withdrawn an application for an amendment to the Official Plan and Zoning Bylaw to allow them to build apartments on the back of an office building that they are constructing. AH has no provision for multi-residential zoning and also the property is zoned commercial. Construction of the office building, which will house Land o’ Lakes Community Services, is proceeding.
