3.         DEPUTATIONS

            Gwen Bowman asked if her daughter Emmi-Lee could speak to the issue of the proposed address change from Nobel to Carling and they also wished to speak on the Noise By-law and her husband Ron would speak on this matter. Mayor Harrison agreed with Councils agreement.

            In regards to the proposed address change Emmi-Lee raised the following concerns; the cost to municipality, local businesses and residents, the time involved in having notifications sent out to suppliers or those that send bills/invoices, cost of staff having to make corrections and re-mail items. The community has already gone through a change about three years ago so why again should we have to go through it again. This proposed change should have been done at that time. Emmi-Lee indicated that a petition has started and wanted to know how quickly they needed to submit it to Council.

            Mayor Harrison replied that Council has to try and find a balance between many competing interests and there are those who have asked for this proposed change to have the mailing address changed from Nobel to Carling. At this time the Township is just exploring what the process is with Canada Post and whether they would even consider such a change. As for the petition the Mayor indicated that a response has not been received from Canada Post to date and therefore the earliest that Council would discuss this matter again would be in July if they receive a response in the next few weeks from Canada Post.

            Mr. Ron Bowman then spoke to the Noise By-law and raised concern that it not become too restrictive or unreasonable to the local residents. Mr. Bowman apologized that he was unable to stay for the full discussion at the committee meeting and asked what the result of the meeting was. The CAO indicated that township staff has been directed to ask the lawyer a specific question regarding question around nuisance noise that is repetitive, continuous in nature that has an adverse effect on others during the day time hours.

            Mr. Bowman asked if the by-law could control the sound generated by tower speakers on wakeboard boats. Mayor Harrison said no and that would be up to the OPP to enforce any complaints under their legislative powers. Mr. Bowman thought that the Township should not be involved in this type of issue and that it be left for the OPP to deal with under their various enforcement tools.

            Emmi-Lee Bowman raised additional concerns over not allowing people to undertake construction work on Sundays or any other outside work as being unreasonable as this maybe the only opportunity for individuals to do such work on their properties.

            Larry Woolner, President of Sail Parry Sound Inc. spoke to Council about Phase II of the site development of the facility. The presentation gave detail on the proposed new observation deck, washroom facilities, sail loft, café kiosk, and future business space available. The vision is to further enhance the site and help offset building maintenance costs thus ensuring the future viability of the organization.

            In concluding their presentation Mr. Woolner indicated that the organization needed to raise approximately $40,000 to leverage provincial and federal funding. Sail Parry Sound Inc. is seeking from the Township a letter of intent endorsing the project as well as financial support in the amount of $5,000.

            Council thanked Mr. Woolner for his presentation and would take his request under consideration and give a response back in July.
