WINCHESTER — Here’s a rerun of North Dundas Council’s meeting last night, Oct. 6, (watch above).
(Please note that several minutes of CAO Angela Rutley’s report is missing, covering council’s positive response to her proposed changes to staff leave in the event someone comes down with COVID-19. That particular discussion merges with a discussion about a shared “dry hydrant” initiative involving the North Dundas and South Dundas fire departments. Otherwise, it’s all here.)
Highlights include Deputy Mayor Al Armstrong’s strong suggestion that council won’t be able to hike taxes in its upcoming budget, due to the stresses of the COVID-19 crisis imposed on the population; council’s support for the Winchester Lions Club’s request to waive rental fees in recognition of the Club turning over its clubhouse for use as Winchester’s COVID-19 testing centre; and a presentation by Bill Smirle of South Nation Conservation. Smirle also delivers an update on the coming Dundas Manor redevelopment.
