NO SHINGLING AT NIGHT IN AYLMER?

 

A recent complaint brought to the attention of the Aylmer Police confirms that construction projects after supper are banned in Aylmer. Aylmer Police note that in the past year they have received 53 noise complaints - only 2 were about construction with 80% dealing with music/parties and the remaining 20% for dogs and vehicles.

Here are some interesting prohibitions from the town’s 1984 noise bylaw:

- any unnecessary noise arising between the hour of 6 pm of any day and 7 am of the following day from any excavation or construction work whatsoever including the erection, demolition, alteration or repair of any building, authorized by the Corporation, except in case of urgent necessity and then under a permit from the Inspector of Buildings of the Municipality.

EEC COMPLEX CONSULTANT MEETS COUNCILS

Aylmer and Malahide councillors were in group sessions discussing EEC Complex governance issues during a special meeting with a consultant at the EECC last night. (kb) (CLICK)

 

Aylmer and Malahide councils met with the recently appointed EECC governance consultant Jennifer Kirkham of Mischievous Cat Productions last night at the EECC. The councils hired the consultant in order to attain a new governance model at the EECC – presently an Ad Hoc committee consisting only of the two Mayors guides the EECC. The consultant’s strategy consisted of a ‘facilitation process’ in which a question and answer session was followed by group discussions. She first asked councillors why the EECC was built (two Malahide councillors were actually elected at the time) and then divided them into mixed council groups to discuss what they hoped to gain by the process. She then asked what they hoped a new governance model would accomplish. Her review also includes another facilitation meeting on June 23.

ONE YEAR AGO THIS WEEK:

 

FARM ACCIDENT 

 

EDEN – “A 57 year old Malahide man was airlifted to hospital in critical condition after being run over by a farm packer being pulled by a tractor near here on May 30. The accident occurred around noon on a  rural property on Eden Line between Plank Road and Sandytown Rd. in  Bayham. The 57 year old male was cutting the lawn around a cabin situated on the property and was in the process of walking backwards with the push mower as a farm tractor passed behind him. He had observed the farm tractor but did not realize that it was towing a cultivator and behind that the packer. Thinking it was clear the victim stepped backwards into the path of the packer and was run over.”

 

 

NEW LIFT AT TRINITY ANGLICAN

 

(Information from Barb Warnock) – “Trinity Anglican Church in Aylmer installed a chair lift into the Parish Hall this month. The lift will make the lower level of the church building accessible to those who find stairs a challenge allowing people to attend functions downstairs and, in the future, through video link, to view services upstairs. The elevator project will remain unfinished for the forseeable future as there are structural obstacles which were not apparent when the exterior door was installed.”

-re- Wind Interpretive Centre (at western entrance to Pt. Burwell), staff were directed to proceed with actions to have Council declare structure as surplus, sell / move or demolish if not sold. (Previously Erie Shores Wind Farm had maintained the property for the past two years.)

SHARON BUIS MISSING

“The search in Juneau, Alaska for missing hiker Sharon Buis,48, formerly of Aylmer, was ended Thursday afternoon by Alaska state troopers, Juneau Empire reporter Emily Miller told TANews today. Sharon, a Juneau resident, had been missing over a week after she failed to meet a friend for a hiking trip and her car was found in a trail parking lot last Saturday (May 24). Local authorities and friends, aided by a helicopter and tracking dogs,  searched the Mt. Roberts area all week without success. The trail at Mt. Roberts is very popular but is also very steep and dangerous in places. Buis, who was born and raised in Aylmer and still has several siblings here, was a physical therapist in Juneau and an experienced hiker.

 ONE YEAR AGO THIS WEEK:

 

“ONT. ELECTION DEBATE IN AYLMER”

Nearly 200 persons attended the Aylmer Express Ontario Election Candidates Night Thursday at the Old Town Hall Theatre. All five candidates for Elgin Middlesex London Riding – Jeff Yurek, PC,  Clare Maloney, Freedom, Serge Lavoie, Liberal, John Fisher, Green, and Kathy Cornish, NDP – were present. Key questions raised concerned health care, jobs, education and energy costs. Linda Stevenson asked for each party’s position on Health Care – Yurek said his party would have no major cuts except for reducing the upper bureaucracy; Maloney said his party would put money into equipment and front line services; Lavoie said his party would support the current administration as long as they were a source of ‘creative thinking’; Cornish said her party would not reduce administrators but freeze wages. Sherry Styve asked about each party’s position on jobs, especially relating to the 100,000 civil servants PC leader Tim Hudak has said he would cut : Yurek said the total would be removed by attrition and replaced by outsourcing and reducing high levels of bureaucracy with the goal being to balance the budget; Maloney said his party would eliminate the Ministry of Colleges and Trades; Lavoie said that despite the attrition plan the 100.,000 would actually be positions lost  and his party would replace manufacturing jobs lost with agrifood projects and a youth job strategy; Cornish said the 100,000 would significantly affect youth and her party would initiate a manufacturing investment tax credit.
