Among decisions made by Malahide Council at their regular meeting last Thursday (information from Deputy Clerk Diana Wilson):

-That the correspondence received from Louise Hussey of Calton Line requesting a review of speed limits and hidden driveways on Calton Line, be received and that Staff be requested to contact the Elgin OPP to request increased enforcement on Calton Line, west of Imperial Road and that Staff review the Calton Line area and install ‘hidden driveway’ signs if the circumstances warranted.

-That the report on “Springfield Beautification and Revitalization” (as prepared by Fanshawe College students) be received and that Staff be authorized to solicit comments/feedback from the public during the summer months regarding potential projects; and that following the comment/feedback period, an informal Review Committee be established to review the public comments and submit any recommendations regarding implementation to the Council for consideration during the 2018 Budget deliberations.

-Received from the Town of Aylmer a request that Malahide contribute $500 towards the cost of a new Canadian flag and plaque for the East Elgin Community Complex, to be erected in memory of former Deputy Mayor Mike Wolfe and that such request be approved.

(Contributed) – The EEC Complex is hosting a ‘paint and skate’ Sunday. This event is inspired by other paint and skates that have happened across Canada, and it is a chance to create art on the ice using paint before one of the ice pads is taken out for the summer. The EECC will be providing paint and paintbrushes and families can come and paint the ice. Skating will be happening from 2-3 pm and then from 3-3:30 the ice can be painted. The price is $6 per family.
