  • The Wellington Advertiser - Province seeking input on fill regulation, reveals potential changes
    soil management during planning The framework would implement regulations on the source sites including requiring excess soil management plans and building permits It would also regulate receiving sites by requiring records for fill brought to licensed aggregate sites and develop best practices for farmers The proposal outlines 21 action items through different ministries and stakeholders seven of which are currently underway eight for short term completion in 2016 and seven devoted to long term completion One action item is being committed to both short and long term completion Municipalities not ready to respond Currently there are no province wide regulations governing excess soil so the responsibility falls on municipalities or conservation authorities Puslinch CAO Karen Lundy explained the township amended its site alteration bylaw three times in 2015 Lundy added the township has not yet reviewed the provincial policy framework but it will appear before Puslinch council at an upcoming meeting for information and comment Robert Kelly chief building officer for Puslinch said fill is not a problem right now but the township has had incidents in the past It s not a current problem there s a few places that we ve experienced we ll call it dumping but in general most of the activity has been through a permanent process he said Kelly said he couldn t comment on the potential for the provincial framework to help or hinder municipalities until he has read it It has the potential to go either way depending on what s written in the provincial policy he said In Erin likely the municipality in Wellington most affected by fill importation due to its proximity to the GTA officials are re working the town s fill bylaw The bylaw update has been on the activity list reported to council each meeting for many months In a recent update to council CAO Kathryn Ironmonger said the staff were watching the Municipality of Scugog for guidance Ironmonger was not available to answer questions by press time In December Erin councillor Jeff Duncan asked council to look into having a county wide site alteration bylaw Public response Arnott said in the press release he hopes the report is taken seriously and doesn t just gather dust on a shelf He added Given the volume of fill that is being trucked out of the city and dumped in rural Ontario we have a responsibility to ensure that this fill is safe and that the health of local residents and the safety of our water supply isn t being put at risk The document called on multiple ministries to be a part of the new policy including Ministry of Natural Resources Ministry of Agriculture Food and Rural Affairs and Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing The provincial role will be established through a multi ministry approach Ministries will enable and facilitate and in some cases provide oversight and implement sustainable excess soil management the report stated The province is seeking input on the following questions Does the proposed

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Minto approves plan to apply for electric vehicle charging stations
    front parking lot just off the highway would be excellent for customer service White pointed out The equipment can be tied in to solar installations still proposed for the town office and the three arenas This creates a unique situation where solar power could be directed into the station as a more complete environmental solution Installation including power supply is expected to cost between 50 000 and 100 000 although 100 of that cost would be borne by the province for a successful application Operational costs are not known although the program allows two per cent of funding to be used to support operations While a service charge can be levied on users White noted there are limits on what you can charge to charge your vehicle something like 10 maximum which is pretty low Councillor Jean Anderson expressed concern that unless the solar power system becomes a reality the charging stations would still leave an ecological footprint Hydro is not a non toxic fuel source it requires a fuel to be burned to produce this she noted Anderson said if there was a guarantee or strong commitment that a solar source would be possible I d be all for it White said The thought was it seems like this tidal wave has already stated to land so do we want to continue to join in with it and see where it takes us He pointed out the town would only be committing to making an application at this time Council approved a recommendation to authorize Arntjen Solar to proceed with the application on the town s behalf Councillors Mary Lou Colwell Judy Dirksen Ron Elliott and Dave Turton voted in favour while Anderson was opposed Mayor George Bridge and deputy mayor Ron Faulkner were absent February 12 2016 Tweet
