Summary of decisions – October 9, 2013, Stratford Town Council Meeting

At the regular Stratford Town Council Meeting on October 9, 2013, the following matters were discussed:

  • Council passed a resolution to increase the Stratford Utility Corporation repairs and maintenance budget to $279,900, to accommodate the sludge removal program that will take place this fall. The Utility recently completed an assessment of the Waste Water Treatment Plant with assistance from the engineering consulting firm exp. As a result of this assessment, one of the recommendations was to have the sludge removed from both cells of the plant. The removal of the sludge will improve the treatment process and the effluent quality and together with other measures will reduce the risk of odor during the spring turnover.
  • Council passed a resolution that that the Town of Stratford accept ownership of the 0.45 acre parcel of land, a portion of parcel #654962, in exchange for a tax receipt in the value of $13,500 and that a letter be sent to Ms. Laura Meader from the Mayor to thank her for her generous donation which will enhance recreational opportunities for residents of the Kinlock Creek Subdivision.
  • Council passed a resolution to approve an application from Genevieve Loughlin to establish and run a Yoga Studio, under the Home Occupation category, out of her residential property located at 49 Bonavista Avenue subject to the applicant meeting all the development bylaw requirements, and entering into a Development Agreement with the Town on the proposed “Home Occupation.”

In addition to the above resolutions the following proclamations were made:

  • Mayor David Dunphy proclaimed October 1 as National Seniors Day, and urged fellow citizens to recognize the crucial role played by older Canadians in our community.
  • Mayor David Dunphy proclaimed November 17 – 24, 2013 as Restorative Justice Week in the Town of Stratford.
