CFN – There was a rather short meeting of the South Stormont Township Council tonight, nothing controversial, just business as usual. There were no delegations and a mere 8 motions were scheduled.
During the open remarks Mayor McGillis congradulated Dan Pilon, the Public Works Manager, on 35 years of service with the township and presented him with a gift.
One Application for Consent to sever a piece of land was approved, a tender for supply of granular material from Cornwall Gravel for $375,390.70 was approved, the tender for Surface Treatment (paving) from Smith Construction for $145,703.70 was approved, and an application for a tile loan from OMAFRA but administered by the township was approved.
A motion to declare May 6 -12, 2012 as Emergency Preparedness Week in South Stormont was also approved.
A question was asked by Councilor Waldroff to find out what the colours signified on the new SD&G branding logo but no one seemed to know.
Under new business Deputy Mayor Hart mentioned an inquiry from a private bus company to see if there was interest in their service to Ottawa.
The open meeting lasted a mere 25 minutes or so but there was a closed session after to discuss personal matters.
