  • The Wellington Advertiser - Puslinch council concerned residents may foot bill to protect city water supply
    top of the issue for council Councillor Ken Roth had concerns about the policies relating to the inspection of private sewage systems in the municipality He believed that policy could cause considerable grief for the township I mean if we have to inspect private septic systems it s not just the cost but we don t have anyone qualified on staff Does it mean we would have to hire someone Roth anticipated there are quite a few private septic systems in Puslinch which would need to be inspected Clerk Brenda Law offered an draft estimate of 224 properties which would be affected by the proposed policies As a result Roth believed the municipality should respond quickly to this correspondence from the city of Guelph Fielding agreed This is going to be a big issue for many municipalities about who is going to end up doing the work and paying for it Fielding said Other municipalities in Halton are very worried about it too She added It certainly has been brought to the attention of the Ministry of the Environment While the issues in Hamilton are not really going to affect much of Puslinch the municipality will be affected overall because of its proximity to other source water protection areas It s going back to the MOE which has made no financial commitment There are lots of issues and concerns as to who is going to pay for all of this While Fielding shared Roth s concern she did not see any answers at present Roth maintained the work required will be very expensive We d have to put our taxes up so high that everyone would move out of the township Roth said Fielding said It s an issue affecting all municipalities especially the rural ones Lever agreed after reading the policies of which he said one was a legal standing the other was a request But there appear to be quite a few costs with it the mayor said While I would certainly like to see Guelph s water system protected I don t think it should be at the expense of Puslinch taxpayers I don t think I ll be supporting anything along those lines He said that while the local municipality might put the programs in place he would anticipate either the city or the province pay the cost and not Puslinch residents Roth said there was only a short timeline for Puslinch to respond I think we should get on this pretty quickly he said Fielding added This is not just a Puslinch problem it s a problem across the province December 30 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

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Sticky situation over use of ice time at Optimist Recreation Centre in Aberfoyle
    little kids were not getting a fair share of the time but I would prefer to leave it in the hands of staff She added that staff seem to have a good idea of who is at the rink and when They both have very good judgement Councillor Wayne Stokley was concerned over liability issues He said there were reports that on one occasion there were up to 65 people on the ice at one time with sticks and various pucks flying around I am concerned with the safety of the individuals there He asked about the liability of the township if someone gets injured If they want to rent the facility and play hockey I believe we re covered But if it is opened up without restrictions I think it opens up the possibility for injuries Stokley s other concern was with the volunteers managing the ice if they are required to deal with people not using the ice properly He stressed the proposal was only for a month A decision needed to be made Councillor Ken Roth said It s a very difficult decision to make He too shared the belief that the Optimist Club s intent was to offer free time for kids not older teenagers endangering the lives of kids The problems at this facility have been high quality hockey players who don t have much courtesy for anyone but themselves We tried to eliminate that problem The unfortunate part is that young kids may suffer because of this decision Roth said he felt if anything was changed from the previous night s decision it would be that time might be set aside for kids to play hockey with their parents as a family time He said a number of the older kids using the facility are from out of town or outside the township They ve kind of taken over the facility at times and caused grief I think they are old enough to rent it However he was uncertain how to determine which age group should have free time or which ones should pay rent To make it simply Roth advocated the free time should be for young kids and their parents Councillor Jerry Schmidt agreed there should be free times available for hockey or sticks I agree it s a very difficult decision to pin down in black and white to make a rule at any given time He said the situation will change from day to day and hour to hour Schmidt said what is needed is the time to evaluate a few options to make an intelligent decision I think we need a cooling off period to find out what the best avenue would be Lever said council was being asked if it was willing to leave it up to staff to make the call how times would be allocated Although he anticipated staff would allow time for hockey he did not want to see the times for skating suffer because
