This is the last meeting before the new Council is sworn in and takes office. There is not much on the agenda of any importance and this post will provide the very limited highlights. Of course check out the full package at the Towns website for the full agenda with attachments.

5.1 – Deputation. Jackie Boggs, Deputy Clerk/Returning Officer regarding the 2014 Municipal Election Statistics. I will need to attend as there is no copy of the presentation in the council package.

8.2 – Resolution. OPP Billing Model for Unorganized Townships. The Town is joining with other Ontario municipalities to request the provincial government ensure that residents in unincorporated townships who receive OPP services pay at least some portion of that cost.

9.1.1 – Resolution. CBDC’s Request for Funding to Assist with Business Growth & Competitiveness. Staff is recommending that Council turn down this request on the basis that the 2014 budget has been disbursed and the 2015 program won’t be advertised until the 2015 budget is approved. I’ve seen this Catch-22 ‘stuff’ from Staff before. Staff has suggested a couple of alternative funding approaches and I suspect Council will find a way to make it happen. CBDC is a great supporter of Parry Sound initiative sand it wouldn’t be very friendly to ‘stiff them’ on this small budget item.

9.1.2 – Resolution. Sail Parry Sound – Request for Permission to Make Improvements/Renovations/Addition. This concerns certain improvements that have been previously presented to Council.

9.2.1 – Resolution. Council of The Town of Parry Sound authorize the immediate disposal of an ambulance to the Britt and Area Fire Department. This is a bit different – a fire in a Fire Hall that destroys the emergency response vehicle.

9.3.1 – Resolution. 2015 Council Meeting Dates. Basically every first and third Tuesday of the month with a few exceptions.
