    issues Wintersinger sad she was seeking reports on the progress of the building Brennan said he did not want to see a report limited to one topic such as a building I would like to see the fire chief come to council to discuss all issues or activities Brennan supported Wintersinger s idea but did not want it restricted to one issue Councillor Barb Tocher asked if those reports would not just be part of a meeting with department heads Councillor Deb Callaghan agreed with Tocher the purpose of the meetings is to get information Maieron said right now the town has nothing He did not anticipate it taking the fire chief long to compile that information Wintersinger said the town has yet to decide on a format of when it will meet with department heads Tocher said she assumes council would be meeting with staff on the fourth Thursday in November and the fire chief would be there to provide a full report I don t see the point of duplicating this doing it twice She cited previous council discussions if council would move to a committee structure or meet with department heads Maieron suggested part of the fire chief s report should include an update on the hall Wintersinger s motion asking for a separate monthly progress report on the Hillsburgh Fire Hall was defeated November 18 2011 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Council likely to reject mandatory water hook-ups
    unlike Callaghan she thinks septic problems are one thing that should be exempt from triggering forced connections because owners may try to delay or avoid fixing septic problems due to the extra cost of the water connection I do believe we should have a strong trigger Tocher said adding small building projects should be exempt as well She suggested the town get legal advice on what powers it actually has to impose water connections but she also opined that when the SSMP is completed all property owners in the urban areas should be forced to connect to the municipal water system Councillor John Brennan said he is not in favour of passing section three and any costs to hook into the system beyond residents property lines should be borne by the system as a whole not individual property owners I don t want to see mandatory hook up at this time I think we should wait for the SSMP said Brennan Mayor Lou Maieron said he can see both sides of the argument He told councillors their concerns about the SSMP are fair but he warned that if the study concludes a sewage treatment plant is necessary for the municipality property owners could potentially face much higher costs to hook into that system At some point we re going to have to make some difficult decisions Maieron said Council is expected to make a formal decision on mandatory connection at its Nov 15 meeting In the meantime it unanimously passed a resolution directing staff to prepare a report outlining what section three may look like without the mandatory hook ups including a possible ban on new wells in urban areas and potential incentives for voluntary connection to the system October 28 2011 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Illegal entrances in Erin cause headaches for roads department
    to that site with entrances none of which would meet safety requirements Van Wyck said in the past such entrances were built with little or no regard for safety In yet another area the town has done considerable work to increase visibility at a particular intersection only to have a resident opt to install a nearby secondary driveway that does not have adequate sight lines I m concerned with the liability especially where the town has tried to provide safe visibility and have a landowner not ask for any permission to install an entrance Councillor Barb Tocher said It may sound a little harsh but these illegal entrances for lack of a better word the culvert is in our right of way if there is one a backhoe would take care of it Absolutely said Van Wyck However he said council would know ahead of time before he takes action He suggested the landowner be given a letter and a deadline to remove the entrance before the town takes action I would prefer to have council s blessing to give the person a period of time in which to remove If not we ll remove it Councillor Deb Callaghan asked if the bylaw gave Van Wyck that authority She said the bylaw outlines what a person should do but there is no penalty section Is there some piece of legislation which allows for you to do that Van Wyck said I ll find it He said landowners need permission to install the driveway over municipal property to reach the road Mayor Lou Maieron asked if previous letters outlined deadlines to remedy such situations Van Wyck said one property owner was told to cease use immediately It has had absolutely no effect Callaghan asked what the incentive is to comply Why would you if there are no consequences Van Wyck said this is just one of several issues in which that person has ignored the rules Maieron asked for suggestions from Van Wyck The road superintendent said he will look into it further but stated the municipality can restrict access and remove entrances Van Wyck also believed there is a communication issue We have to let people know they cannot install a driveway where ever they wish If it s in a bad spot there s little else we can do once it is there Maieron asked to wait until more information is available By not doing anything we are assuming the liability Van Wyck warned To eliminate the liability he said the town needs to find a way to rectify the problem He added Erin s bylaw is fairly similar to Wellington County s entrance bylaw Councillor John Brennan said council should consider amending the town bylaw to include provisions to give the bylaw some teeth to make it more effective November 18 2011 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not
