1-78% OF SURVEY SAYS: JOHN ST. LIBRARY

 

Aylmer Council at its regular meeting tonight will receive the results of its recent survey on where to locate an expanded library. Seventy eight percent prefer the library to expand at its present location. The totals were: 181-39 in favour of the John St. addition over a Myrtle St. stand alone building.

 

2-POLICE ON MYRTLE? FLOOD CONCERNS

 

Ric Murray, former Aylmer Councillor and Chairman of the Police Services Board and a member of the Building committee for the Police Station built in north Aylmer in the 1990s reports that a Myrtle St. location being proposed for a new library presently was an area dismissed as a police station site due to flooding concerns some 25 years ago. Said Mr. Murray today:  “We wanted to put it on the tennis courts as the current location was problematic because a train could delay response time. There is a Catfish Creek study someplace that affirms a flood threat to the whole area and indeed, the next spring circa. 1990 the courts were covered in water. It’s not only natural floods but if an obstruction were to dam the Catfish (and this is a real threat because of large old trees on the banks) water back up is possible. Ultimately the site was abandoned due to flood concerns.”
