Councillor Konoval reported on the 2012 AMO Conference and the exceptional speakers involved in the event as well as the trade show. The ability to discuss municipal issues and hear different perspectives with such a wide variety of municipal representatives across the province cannot be understated.

Councillor Murphy reported that the Museum and Library do not hold meetings during the summer and therefore had nothing to report.

Councillor Murphy informed Council of the upcoming meetings with Belvedere. The following members indicated they would be attending the October 17 meeting; Mayor Harrison, Councillors Murphy, Konoval and Larson. Councillor Gordon indicated he would not be able to attend.

Councillor Larson indicated that the Industrial Park Board meeting was cancelled and therefore nothing to report.

Councillor Larson attended a Planning Board meeting in which several items dealt with Township applicants. In addition, there was a discussion around whether the Board should be adding an additional $500 refundable fee for applicants who incur additional costs with the Planner John Jackson. Council expressed a concern that the Boards planner was even discussing with applicants their proposals and asked that this item be brought back for further discussion.

Councillor Gordon reported he was unable to attend any meetings in the past month.

Mayor Harrison reported to Council on a letter received from the Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks and Treasurers of Ontario that dealt with the Townships CAO and recognizes his 20 years of service in the Association.
