Here is my take on this week’s Town of Parry Sound council meeting agenda.

2.1 – Proposed Zoning By-law Amendment – Z/20/02 – 2 Oastler Park Drive (John Jackson Planner Inc. on behalf of Waltmar Inc.
Who is Waltmar and why are they trying to ‘disguise’ their name. If you search for “Waltmar Inc. Parry Sound”, Google directs you to Walmart. If you insist on Waltmar it takes you to a 2015 blog posting from this website. It seems that Waltmar is the corporate parent of the dock company across from Sobey’s and they are looking to expand. I think Seguin Township may have some say in this as there are environmental issues involved.

9.1.1 & 9.1.2 – Sign By-law Variance Applications.
More ugly signs coming on Bowes Street to distract drivers.

10.1.2 – Big Sound Marina Agreement One Year Extension with Massasauga Management Co.
Apparently no one else put in a bid to run Big Sound Marina so the Town has decided to extend the lease for Massasauga Management Co. another year. It’s hard to get the best price from a lessee if there are no other offers.
