  • The Wellington Advertiser - Official plan amendment means Palmerston to grow
    35 townhouse units for a total of 79 dwellings Phase two does not show a lot layout but an earlier concept plan showed about 33 single detached lots The combined total is 112 dwelling units Van Patter noted there was a public meeting in June and there were no citizen submissions In August Minto council supported the amendment with special policies to address compatibility of industrial lands and phasing for the town s limited sewage capacity Van Patter said in the county s growth plan Palmerston has an under supply of housing and this plan would reduce that to 131 residential units Palmerston is expected to grow from 2 760 people to 4 060 population by 2031 and 470 households are required to reach that target Van Patter also pointed out there is no reasonable alternative to using the land since Palmerston is surrounded by prime farmland on all sides and expansion to the south does not make sense since that would travel outside the county s boundaries into neighbouring Perth County He also noted there are two barns near the proposed subdivision but one is outside the minimum distance separation formula so it has no effect and the other farming operation is cash cropping with no animals being housed As for compatibility with the industrial park Van Patter stated The town may be able to assist in reducing land use conflict by rezoning an area of Minto owned industrial lands south of Noble Road to light industry permitting only Class 1 uses Van Patter recommended a holding designation for the property development until sewage capacity is available in the community County council unanimously approved the committee s recommendation to accept the official plan amendment when it passed its committee minutes November 11 2011 Tweet Tell Us What You Think

  • The Wellington Advertiser - City loses public health case in court; appeals to province
    is flawed and needs to change With the support of this decision we will pursue assistance from the ministry She added The city s position has not changed we need a provincially appointed assessor to investigate the issues we have identified In light of this court decision we will repeat our request to the government of Ontario Seeking costs Wellington County officials have indicated they are getting tired of issues with Guelph costing ratepayers money The county and the city have been at odds for several years over social services and land ambulance service and also a court action to force the city to pay its proper share for the Wellington Terrace nursing home The city attempted to take over social services and wanted to run its own seniors facility but was rebuffed by the province Meanwhile the county lost its case while trying to take over ambulance service from the city County Warden Chris White said in an interview of the latest court action We re going after costs You want to try to put the brakes on these things Country Treasurer Craig Dyer said on Tuesday morning the county s legal costs on the court case are about 125 000 Dufferin County clerk Pam Hillock said on Tuesday morning Dufferin s costs were about 45 000 but not all of them are in yet White said I don t think it would be fair to ask county residents to pick up the costs when we won the case Guelph made the two counties a party to the judicial action White said of the judge s decision It matches our interpretation of the legislation that Guelph cannot withdraw from its financial responsibility to pay its share of the costs of the two buildings Those costs are estimated at about 22 million in total with the city paying about 10 million He also noted Guelph was on par with us right up to the end when the costs were finally announced Former Wellington warden and current WDGPH board member Joanne Ross Zuj said Farbridge was on the facilities committee that spent four years looking at options for buildings She too did not like the idea that county residents got dragged into a court case Guelph has an issue with a provincial act she said To have two counties involved in litigation was at the expense of the ratepayers We only operate under the act The ruling was quite clear we are spending correctly As for the city running into debt problems Ross Zuj suggested the county also faces financial challenges but it budgets for its responsibilities Guelph solicitor Donna Jaques said in an interview Price ruled that Minister of Health Deb Matthews did not have the power to refuse to appoint an assessor which she said is an interesting twist in that decision She added of the court decision I don t think the city necessarily lost She stated one reason Guelph balked at the costs at the last minute

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Public health unit: Owners must vaccinate pets against rabies
    can protect them against rabies This in turn helps reduce the likelihood of a rabies exposure to humans Public health inspectors investigate all reports of biting or scratching incidents involving a human and animal When an inspector can identify the pet owner they make sure the owner isolates and confines the animal on their property for a period of 10 days after the date of biting visit and inspect the isolated animal before it is released to make sure it does not show any signs of rabies and release vaccine if a doctor decides that the victim needs to be treated If an investigation fails to identify a pet owner the inspector will also consult with a doctor for possible treatment Remember vaccination for cats and dogs is mandatory and you can be fined if your pet is caught without an up to date rabies shot said Hutchison For more information about rabies and other reportable diseases visit www wdgpublichealth ca October 7 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 information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines Related Stories Mapleton Minto 81s have successful weekend Habitat for Humanity launch well attended Wellington Countys blue box program turns 25 Warden little interest in elected at large head of county council Joint economic development meeting held Erin yet to pass fortification bylaw OPP Inspector Scott Smith reviews the issue January is Crime Stoppers Month Hospital executives earn almost 700 000 Board of healths elected officers

  • The Wellington Advertiser - New restaurant in Drayton causes council to alter parking rules
