  • The Wellington Advertiser - Two sides offer different projection of township costs for transit service
    gradual ramp up of costs Cook said adding the annual cost should level out around the 65 000 mark after three years Lennox said it is interesting that Cook is coming forward with that figure now considering council asked some time ago for a five year projection of costs but Cook provided only two years worth of estimates As a result Lennox said he had to come up with his own projection He admitted using the Hanover figure and pro rating it for Wellington North s population but he said the actual size of the expenditure may not be the issue We can argue about the numbers all day but my message to council was about affordability Lennox said It is always nice to add a new service he added but not if it places a large burden on taxpayers especially when the township s finances are such that council may have to consider cutting some services from the budget Adding a new service seems impractical no matter what the numbers are Lennox said The SMART service like any other on demand specialized transit service is expensive Cook acknowledged but it is money well spent Municipal payments cover only operating costs he explained including driver wages administration insurance fuel maintenance advertising and more All capital costs are funded through a gas tax reserve fund He told the Advertiser the service would serve about 100 residents initially and all the feedback he has heard from locals has been positive Council is expected to make a decision on the SMART service at its next meeting on Oct 17 at 7pm October 14 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

  • The Wellington Advertiser - MPP John Wilkinson announces $50,000 for South Luther Hall restoration efforts
    because the application wasn t exactly right in the first submission didn t mean the Trillium committee was about to trash it and forget about it He said the Foundation gave the group ideas and recommended they come back for the application to be reviewed again Bosch said there are numerous subgroups across the province for the distribution of between 120 to 140 million The local group covers the region of Waterloo Wellington and Dufferin hands out roughly 4 5 to 5 0 million annually He explained part of the process in this case was determining which portion of the project would be best funded by a Trillium grant He then spoke of the heritage one room school house building noting he too attended a one room school near Elgin I m very familiar with this While not unusual it s nice to have around He pointed to the South Luther hall as one of the surviving historic structures of the area He quipped that Ruthan and Dennis Johnson dressed in period costume might have been some of the first few students Ruthan is an educator for the Dufferin County Museum Wellington North Mayor Mike Broomhead considered the event quite an emotional day As a long time supporter of the Friends of South Luther School Hall thank you to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for providing this grant said Broomhead I would like to congratulate the Friends of South Luther School and the Province of Ontario for working together to restore these important heritage buildings in our community Broomhead described the hall as an absolutely beautiful building He too agreed this has been an ongoing issue for a number of years Not too far back in history this building came very close to being levelled he said It was only through the dedication of the Friends of the South Luther Hall and their hard work and determination that the building is still standing like it is He added I know at times it was very frustrating for them it was very frustrating for myself Broomhead said he looks forward to the day there will be a ribbon cutting at an official reopening ceremony He alluded to the work being done to preserve the Carnegie libraries throughout Wellington County as well as the Wellington County Archives expansion These buildings are going to be part of the community for a long long time Pacquette who has served with the Friends of South Luther School Hall for the past five years said It s been a struggle in a lot of ways We re very glad for all the help we ve got She noted the group incorporated in 2006 and was therefore able to go ahead in a number of directions In 2008 the group purchased the school from Wellington North She said as far as they understood the first log school in the area was built in 1852 and also served as a church We re not sure how long it served
