REMINDER ABOUT THE COUNCIL MEETING ON TUESDAY: The meeting starts at 1 p.m. at the Municipal office, 3rd floor, 960 Portage Avenue at the corner of Lipton. Seating will be limited–so get there early.
WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR THE PROMISED 2ND INFORMATION MEETING WHERE THE OPPONENTS OF REVETMENTS/RIP-RAPS/STONE WALLS WERE TO BE ALLOWED TO PRESENT THEIR SIDE.
Expected to be on the agenda:
-the rip rap structure that was started on Patricia / Arthur Beach last Tuesday without Council approval. The Cease And Desist Order expires on Tuesday, so Council will have to make a decision.
– recommendations from the Shoreline Erosion Technical Committee (SETC) regarding this structure and its effect on the beach. THIS WILL BE A VERY IMPORTANT AND CRITICAL DOCUMENT FOR COUNCIL TO HAVE TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT WHEN MAKING DECISIONS.
– the temporary sandbag solution proposed for King Edward and Alexandra beaches. Please remember that this was to be a temporary solution designed to protect the properties along Sunset while allowing for due diligence to be conducted regarding beach and property preservation.
***If you cannot attend be sure to email them with your thoughts and concerns beforehand. Time is of the essence.***
