  • The Wellington Advertiser - Phase one of Morriston streetscape project to start this spring
    is a series of concrete islands Another potential area was identified at the south end of Morriston by Church Street Hill said there is a section where the sidewalk is right on the edge of the road then veers back forming a boulevard The area on the eastern side was identified as being an area where trees could be planted Plans were drafted and basically we ve come to an agreement said Hill He added phase one planting at the north end of the community includes flowering shade and coniferous trees On the south side the MTO generally had no issue with what was proposed on the east side of the highway However the permits are staggered so the encroachment permit is only for the work in the northern part of Morriston Hill said there was discussion whether that permit could be extended to the south end if appropriate to do so The MTO did not like the planting in the downtown by the restaurant They don t want to see anything vertical in those areas Hill said a tender will be posted in mid February with the intent of having work begin in mid to late March For planting purposes this is probably the best case scenario we can have He again noted that because of the urban conditions of the highway location the species of trees picked are chosen for their hardiness and resistance to salt spray Hill anticipated actual construction time to be relatively short We fully expect by the end of April this work should be done Wellington County councillor Don McKay who lives on the south edge of Morriston talked about the option of private property owners taking part Hill noted the streetscape project has a selected number of tree species selected If people wish to contribute by planting on their own properties then choosing the same plant materials would create a consistent approach Hill noted the MTO is not really in the business of tree planting Their focus is the safety of the roadway anything that falls outside that gets a little grey for them Hill noted what happened is somewhat outside the MTO s comfort zone He also noted that any maintenance of trees and shrubs will be the responsibility of the municipality Resident Bill Knestch question the MTO concerns about the traffic islands in front of the restaurant Hill said it goes back to the MTO s core interest the safety and function of the highway McKay noted if the Morriston bypass goes ahead the road may become a county or municipal road and the MTO rules might no longer be a concern February 12 2016 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

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Guelph-Eramosa council considers 7.1% increase in township taxes
    subsequent years However there could be additional levies added in the future While council agreed a levy is necessary there wasn t a consensus on the amount Marshall was originally leaning toward a 1 14 infrastructure levy but she agreed in the end that a 2 minimum was acceptable Bouwmeester said he wasn t ready to make a decision and asked for another meeting to discuss the options in more detail White said We are fundamentally roads and bridges it s what we do but that s not all we do There s all kinds of legislative things we have there s water management there s parks and rec there s services you provide through licensing there s fire so you ve got to put it all in the pot to try to figure out where you re going Water and wastewater The township underwent a water and wastewater rate study last year and much of the 2016 draft budget is based on the study explained director of public works Harry Niemi However Wolk asked about a 16 800 increase in salaries and wages Two students will be hired and shared among departments Niemi said noting that in the water and wastewater department their duties will be primarily dedicated to asset management inventory We have all of our assets identified but in some cases we don t know physically where they are he explained The students will map the system over the summer and Niemi estimated the work wouldn t cost more than 50 000 It s a lot of money to go count some holes in the ground Wolk said When the system was built in the late 1970s it was not inventoried White explained The municipality has records for the user pay water and wastewater system but there is no data on storm drains a municipal service that will be identified this year Another major expense in the water and wastewater budget is the construction of a new well at 154 Milne Place for 1 1 million Legal fund Wolk also asked about the 26 000 set aside in the draft budget for legal fees Without discussing any legal issues I think we all know we have some legal issues we re dealing with and it seems to me that I would have no hesitation in telling you that I am sure we will be over 26 000 on legal fees said Wolk Are we showing our best wisdom here putting only 26 000 into the total budget or should we in fact be bumping that number Cheyne clarified there is actually 53 000 in the budget for legal fees The municipality will also use a portion of working fund reserves 319 453 of surplus revenue in the event that legal fees exceed the budgeted amount The budget originally had 125 000 removed from the working fund to repave the township office parking lot However with unknown legal fees Cheyne suggested postponing the repaving project Councillor Mark Bouwmeester

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Neighbours voice concern over potential impact of Dirty Apron in Arkell
    against the proposal but everything has to be brought into compliance Councillor Susan Fielding said residents have a lot of legitimate concerns Fielding said the applicant is aware of them and we are certainly a long way from a decision Councillor Matthew Bulmer noted it is always sad to see neighbour against neighbour and it is unfortunate to hear about the erosion of trust Bulmer said when we have good bylaws and apply them properly it helps to build trust He said he wants to take the owner at his word that he wants this new business to be something the community can be proud of Another perspective Building owner John Sloot offered another perspective on the same matter Sloot said the intent is not to pit neighbour against neighbour Sloot suggested part of the issue is that not everyone has a clear understanding of what is being proposed and some things are being taken out of context This is not meant to be a bar it is meant to be a little restaurant café that can serve the occasional beer or wine if so desired he said In the spirit of cooperation Goyda and Sloot agreed to put the liquor permit application off for six months to get the establishment up and running to prove ourselves Sloot said To be honest it is a little discouraging that the group couldn t come to talk to us prior to a delegation coming before council in this format Sloot added an architect has been hired to deal with some of the building issues Jessica Goyda appeared before council on behalf of her husband Stephen owner of the Dirty Apron We both thought it was important to tell you our story We both grew up loving food and could recite some of our most meaningful life moments gathered around a table enjoying a meal with those we love she said We really do both love food and the experience food can create Jessica continued This is what inspired my husband Steve and I to pursue this opportunity at the Arkell store which she described it as a food focused small community establishment on one side a little market providing fresh ingredients and home made meals that can be taken home to produce a family meal on the other side a small dining area of 18 seats where a few families at a time can sit together and enjoy each other s company while watching their food being prepared She explained when the dining area is not in use it could be utilized to host cooking classes to hone the skills to prepare a family meal To us it seemed a wonderful way for Steve to follow his passion to build relationships and strengthen the community a community where we have chosen to live and raise our children she said Jessica too noted there are building code requirements which need to be met She said septics and parking are two of the main

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Pill problems

  • The Wellington Advertiser - The greatest risk
    robust automobile sales were fueled by low or no interest payments and up to seven years for repayment All this suggests that auto sales are unlikely to grow from now on Thus despite the unheeded warnings of the Bank of Canada the susceptibility to a downturn continues to grow This emphasizes the strange optimistic attitude of the U S central bank in raising interest rates now Meanwhile our Prime Minister is planning to stimulate our economy by large deficit spending It is about time that Canadians wake up Our political leaders seem oblivious to the current situation It is time for all of us to act more prudently and for our political leaders to do likewise to shed off the possibility of serious trouble Vol 49 Issue 07 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 COLUMNISTS Barrie Hopkins Bruce Whitestone Kelly Waterhouse Recent Columns Bits and Pieces The Bailey Bridge Cold colder and coldest Frosty Friday January thaw Frosty Friday Silent and symbiotic Winter wonderland Double surprise Canada s Business Presumptuous Left out Negative trends Left out Responsibility Bad Omens A precarious economy Troubled economy Comment from Ottawa The new session The Reform Act Services for seniors Small businesses Anti terrorism bill is needed Terrorism Helping families Veterans Life wise Retirement Canadas scarcity of calamity Often we mirror our parents Putting up with put downs A tale of two landlords A letter from the campsite Two shades
