The police costing issue will again be front and centre at tonight’s regular meeting of the whole.
Two weeks ago, the vote was deadlocked 3-3, meaning the motion to direct the CAO to obtain a cost of policing from the OPP was lost. Councillor Mark King, who was the mover, then gave notice of a motion to reconsider. So, the police question is again on the agenda for tonight’s meeting.
There is also a presentation from a member of the public, Robert Dufresne, on the police matter.
Letters of resignation will be received from Ayla Morland (North Bay Public Library Board) and Tom Richardson (Downtown Improvement Area Board of Management).
First, second, and third readings are scheduled for by-laws to rezone the Pinewood Park Drive land to accommodate an arena and/or a casino. Although, Gateway Casinos seems to have decided that it prefers the west end of town for its casino.
And, Councillor Mac Bain will bring forward a motion urging the province to honour its commitment that no unwilling municipality government will have a fire-medic program imposed upon them.
NOTE: The committee meeting originally scheduled for 6:30pm has been cancelled. The regular meeting has been moved up to take the committee meeting’s place.
