What’s on tap at #StCath Council on 150608

A busy night (they all seem to be, lately) at St. Catharines City Council scheduled for next Monday night, June 8th. A copy of the General Agenda and the Regular Agenda are posted on the city website, both subject to change between now and the 8th. A few of the highlights:

Regular Council:

  • A townhouse development on Parnell Rd;
  • Presentations from the Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre Niagara (regarding Community Partnerships) and the Niagara Sustainability Initiative )regarding the City’s Carbon Footprint);
  • Motions regarding establishing a Port Dalhousie Supper Market, City Council’s meeting schedule and Inter-municipal Transit.

General Committee:

  • Grafitti removal;
  • First Ontario Performing Arts Centre rates and fees – this report is the result of a referral to staff I asked for after presentations at the Public Meeting a few weeks ago, and can be viewed by itself here;
  • Follow-up report on the proposed condominium development on Vansickle N – this will be the subject of another blog post this week, and the follow up report can be viewed by itself here;
  • the monthly cheque register;
  • a report on accessible parking spots and the zoning bylaw;
  • a revised site plan approval process;
  • Queenston St. reconstruction project;
  • sidewalk and curb repairs at 13 and 15 Moote St;
  • an update on the design and budget for the Fallen Worker Memorial;
  • the report to establish a new, Standing Budget Committee that would meet year-round – I’ll be putting another blog post up later this week on this topic as well – report is by itself here;
  • a report on a potential grant to the Kiwanis Club for Father Fest;
  • and the usual correspondence list for Council.

I’ve noted the reports of particular interest to me at this meeting, and as I mentioned I will have a few posts out this week about those issues separately.  As always, if you have any comments for me, email is the quickest way to get a hold of me at msiscoe@stcatharines.ca, although Twitter works as well (@MatSiscoe).
