Jewell Engineering will prepare a proposal for rebuilding the Flinton Bridge to be submitted to the Ontario government’s new Municipal Infrastructure Initiative. The deadline for applications is February 15, so council will need to have all the details at their next council meeting.

Council voted to endorse a resolution from the Township of North Grenville, asking the Ontario government to commit 1/8th of Provinical Sales Taxes to municipalities to fund Municipal Infrastructure Programs.

Over the holidays, cars were left parked on County Road 30 for several days, hindering road maintenance. Roads Superintendent Royce Rosenblath expressed some frustration that has not been able to get the names of the owners of the cars from police. He said they told him they would contact the people involved.The OPP will attend the next council meeting.

Plans are being made for the whole council to take a roads tour next year. “It will take more than two days,” commented Royce Rosenblath.

Members of the Weslemkoon cottage association had attended a recent meeting of the waste management committee and requested extra open hours at the waste sites. They requested that the Weslemkoon waste site be open Monday to Friday and on weekends as well. The waste site attendant told Councilor Eythel Grant that he doesn’t have the time to keep the dump open for those hours. Council will look into increasing the open hours at the waste sites.

The next AHEAD (Addington Highlands Economic Advisors for Development) business breakfast will be at the Kaladar Community Centre at 8AM on Friday February 1. Guest speakers will be Pierre Cliche,former Vice-President of K Mart Canada, and Gillian Chapman, representative of the PELA CFDC. Tickets are $7 each.
