CFN – Tonight the Township of South Stormont had a regular council meeting. It was another typical South Stormont meeting where the different department reported the previous month’s activities. The OPP described incidents in which they were called out in March; the Fire Department gave a report on their responses; Public Works, Building/Development, Finance and Administration reports were all presented, discussed and accepted by Council.
The well run meeting covered all the usual mundane details of running a Township. Water, sewage and garbage disposal matters were covered, a site plan for a communication tower was discussed and zoning issues and subdivision concerns made the agenda. Even a $1,000 donation from the CN Volunteer Grant Program to acknowledge Volunteer Firefighter and full time CN employee Brain Meerburg was mentioned by Fire Chief Roger Desjardins during his report.
There were no protests, no petitions and almost no media present. There were no speeches from councillors, no one has resigned and none of the councillors have filed a complaint with the Provincial government….. Pretty boring, huh.
However, one interesting item did come up in new business. The council passed a resolution to formally request a written response from the CCH within 60 days concerning what actions they will be taking to resolve their current contentious hiring practises.
It will be interesting to see if and how the hospital responds…
