Council Rundown

October 27, 2023

The October 27, 2023 Regular Meeting of Council was a brief meeting consisting of two primary items.  

Recommendation regarding Connecting Link Funding Application

Council supported the various criteria required of the municipality to submit its next application for Connecting Link funding. This funding is for the Centre Street road resurfacing. If successful this next round will be to complete the section of Centre Street from Station Road to Tudhope Street.

Recommendation regarding Boogie Mountain Water Request

Council deferred a motion regarding a request from Boogie Mountain for free water for five years for snow making purposes. Staff presented various options, but refinement of the rates and estimates along with a legal opinion is necessary before Council can make a decision. Staff’s recommendation to date is not to waive water fees.
