The Barrie Examiner, July 15:
A motion by Deputy Mayor George Lawrence and Coun. Andre Claire asking the Premier to act was unanimously supported at Monday [July 13th]’s [Tiny Township] council meeting.
The motion cites council’s concerns about “outstanding environmental issues,” the protection and conservation of groundwater at the site. There remains,” it says, “a community-wide concern regarding a number of unsatisfactorily answered site design questions.”
The motion also notes there is an outstanding appeal concerning the site to Ontario’s Ombudsman by the former chair of the Community Monitoring Committee (Ray Millar).
Mayor Peggy Breckenridge has asked County Warden Tony Guergis to call a special meeting of county council to deal with the escalating situation at the dump site. She suggests the meeting might be held under the procedural bylaw and, because it would deal with the security of county property, could be held in-camera.
