DEMOCRACY IN ACTION, Part 2
Galway Cavendish and Harvey Township Listens!
The Council of Galway Cavendish Harvey Township agreed to listen the delegation from the North Pigeon Lake Ratepayers Association (NPLRA) on November 6th. Roger Leclerc and I presented what our members, members of many other associations, and numerous residents of GCH believe to be a rational and well thought out solution that allows our Council and staff to build a plan for managing quarry zoning and applications. The presenters were very surprised that after their limited 10 minute presentation there were no questions, objections or concerns raised by the Council. Perhaps the earlier letter outlining our idea and the public pressure from over 100 in attendance laid the groundwork for the Council to respond quickly.
At the end of the presentation the staff of GCH Township were directed to prepare a bylaw as suggested by NPLRA. Thanks for turning out folks. We apologize to those who could not get in as the room was packed. Thanks for your ongoing and unwavering support. Thanks Council for listening and acting. Now we await your vote on the bylaw which we hope reflects your constituents’ wishes.
