Council to hear presentations


Town council will hear presentations from the Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre and NCDS at its regular meeting tonight.
Library CEO Caroline Goulding will present council with a report entitled, “The Value of Your Library–Social and Economic Return on Your Investment.”
NCDS executive director Nicke Paddock then will speak about NCDS’ community involvement.
There also will be a public meeting to approve a 2018 tax adjustment for property located at 335 Scott St., resulting from a demolition of a building to allow the land to be used as a parking lot.
Tonight’s council meeting will follow the committee of the whole meeting, which gets underway at 4 p.m. (not 5:30 p.m. as was listed in “Around Town” in Thursday’s Daily Bulletin).
Two in-camera items are on the agenda first, which involve the local wood supply/mill negotiations and Agency One matters.
Other business on the agenda tonight includes:
•a report re: establishing 2019 water and sewer rates;
•a request from Trevor Fitzgerald of Gillons Insurance Brokers re: 2019 parking passes;
•a bylaw to adopt a code of conduct for members of council, local boards, and committees of the Corporation of the Town of Fort Frances;
•a bylaw to appoint Paul Heayn as integrity commissioner for the Corporation of the Town of Fort Frances; and
•a resolution re: attendance at the upcoming “Essentials of Municipal Fire Protection” seminar.
