Brief Council update


Council has met for two regularly scheduled meetings since the last update, one on May 16, and a virtual meeting held on May 24. The May 16 meeting began with a closed session. The open portion began with a presentation from Sara Jane Manning to request that Council fly the Progressive Pride Flag in addition to the other flags flown at the North Grenville Municipal Centre.

Following items on the consent agenda, which are handled in one motion, some other items of business were discussed. These include general updates from various departments, and speed limit changes for two North Grenville roads. Council also heard minutes from various committees The open portion of the May 16 meeting lasted just under one hour.

The May 24 meeting had a very limited agenda. In fact, it contained only one item of substance – consideration to declare the Kemptville Building Centre Customer Appreciation Event as a Municipally Significant Event. The purpose of an event being declared “Municipally Significant” is typically to allow alcohol to be served in a public place.
