Highlights from the meeting include:
Natural Gas lines have arrived earlier than expected in Point Clark and Ripley in the last year. Staff presented a report to Council reviewing the current age of equipment and need for replacement. Staff recommends the following replacements and conversions:
- The Point Clark Community Centre - converting the upstairs furnace (8 years old) and replacing the downstairs furnace (23 years old) for a total cost of $8,770
- Converting the Ripley Medical Centre furnace (10 years old) from propane to natural gas $1,890
- Replacing the Ripley Library furnace with a natural gas furnace for $5,100
The goal of the Strategic Plan for the Township of Huron-Kinloss is to identify what is important to Council, Staff, and the Community. The plan includes a vision for the community asking, “where do we want to be?” and an action plan to answer the question “how are we going to get there?”.
The consultation plan portion of the strategic plan includes many opportunities to get involved in the strategic planning process, including community workshops, a public survey, school sessions and public events. Please visit Have Your Say HK to learn more and get involved.
