  • The Wellington Advertiser - Influx of closed sessions, Carroll Pond costs among residents concerns
    a report on the monitoring costs to the next community forum in November Wozniak then asked who would be financially responsible if contaminant are found in the water coming from the drain Lever said he is not sure and he would look into the matter although he suspected whoever was responsible for contaminating the water would also pay any associated costs Law confirmed that is one of the reasons for installing the monitoring equipment in the first place Railroad crossings Michael Calzonetti submitted a written inquiry asking if it is possible to install flashing lights or barriers or both at a railway crossing in Hume Road southeast of Arkell Councillor Wayne Stokley said the township decided to trim back foliage around that crossing as well as another nearby on Watson Road to improve sight lines But the township decided in 2009 not to proceed with major upgrades at either crossing due to financial constraints Stokley added Former roads superintendent James Howlett estimated in 2009 that installing flashing lights would cost the township between 125 000 and 180 000 per crossing and a grant was unlikely Glenna Smith suggested traffic in the area has changed since the last report and said the issue should be readdressed Lever said the bigger problem is at the Watson Road crossing and he agreed to approach officials with Guelph Junction Railway under whose jurisdiction the crossings fall as well as to get another study completed Concession 1 closure Resident James Carroll wrote to council to ask if it is possible to close access to Concession 1 along Highway 6 near Bryan s Farm Equipment south of Morriston Meeting facilitator Amanda Levy acknowledged most people agree there is an issue at that intersection It s almost impossible to turn left at that point onto Highway 6 without putting your life at risk Levy said Fielding agreed but said statistically there have not been many serious accidents there She added the mayor is looking into new technology that can predict the likelihood of collisions at certain intersections We re not prepared to make a decision on that until we get more information from the engineer Fielding said of closing the intersection Lever said officials with Gamsby and Mannerow the township s engineering consultant have recommended three firms that could carry out the new study The township hopes to receive a quote within a month or two and council will make a decision then he added Concession 7 work Resident Bill Sims is glad to see reduced truck traffic along Concession 7 thanks to the recent installation of signs but he would still like to see a speed reduction and a new asphalt surface on the 2 km section between Concessions 1 and 2 Councillors said they would consider lowering the speed limit but seemed less committal to paving the road Stokley said the township is moving in that direction but the cost is prohibitive and Lever agreed We really just can t do it on our own
