Council once again meets on October 19 by Zoom starting at 5:00 p.m. The meeting can be streamed on the Township’s YouTube Channel. The full agenda is available on the website but a few items of interest are outlined here;

  • Delegation from Birchcliff Property Owners Association (BPOA) – Council will hear a presentation about concerns regarding safety on Birchview Road. Last year they made a similar presentation and some action was taken but residents are proposing additional enhancements.
  • Public Meetings for input on a new Comprehensive Animal Control By-Law – Last winter, staff proposed a comprehensive animal control by-law which raised some concern from Council. We decided to defer adopting the by-law until we could have more input from residents. Staff are now proposing an outreach strategy to garner feedback from residents.
  • Internet-Telephone Voting System – After a joint RFP process involving other local municipalities we will be once again using Simply Voting for online and telephone voting in the 2022 municipal election.
  • COVID-19 Vaccination Policy – Staff are recommending a policy to mandate vaccines for Township staff.
