Once again there is a Douro Dummer Council Meeting, it’s scheduled for November 2. The agenda is available on the Township website but here is a summary of a few items that are up for discussion.

  • Public Meeting regarding a proposed Zoning By-law Amendment at Wildfire Golf Course. At these meetings the public can speak in favour or against the proposed application.
  • Staff update on Birchview Road – Council has received a number of delegations from residents along Birchview who are concerned about safety. Staff has identified some possible ways to remedy their concerns.
  • Draft Election Sign and Advertisement By-Law – With both the provincial and municipal elections approaching next year, staff have reviewed our current by-laws and are proposing some changes and updates. These updates combine the federal, provincial and municipal rules in an attempt to create a Township-wide By-Law that will address all election signs.

  • Draft Proposed Procedural By-Law – Right now, staff are bringing the by-law forward and are asking for Council’s input for consideration at a future meeting. This update has been something I’ve been pushing for as it provides for greater transparency and access to government and streamlines our meetings.
  • Modernization Funding Update – In 2019 we received some funding from the province and had earmarked a number of items that would qualify for spending. Staff are outlining the status of those projects and the funding.

Meeting Information:

The meeting will be streamed on the Douro Dummer Township YouTube Channel starting at 5:00 p.m. The next Douro Dummer Council Meeting will occur on November 16, 2021.
