The MRA would like to congratulate Mr. David Pink on his appointment to Director of Planning for the Township of Muskoka Lakes. David has been the Interim Director of Planning since Stephen Fahner left the Senior Staff position in July of 2012.
A very interesting presentation was made this session regarding Brian Orser running a skating school the last week of August at the Port Carling Arena, as he did in August of 2012. His organization, to be invited to our community by the Port Carling Figure Skating Club, includes world class skaters. Last August there were skaters and, in some cases their families, from seven different countries. What an exciting opportunity for these families, and a prefect opportunity for economic development in the Township.
This meeting session, the MRA attended the Council Meeting, a Special Council Meeting regarding the budget and Committee of the Whole meeting. Although a few issues arose, the bulk of Council’s time was spent on the 2013 Budget. The Capital and Operating Budgets “version 4” were reviewed, as well as a 10 year capital forecast. Council spent many hours reviewing the figures, asking questions and raising concerns. The MRA found these meetings interesting and thought we would ask our membership the following
Do you as a tax payer know:
There is a public special Committee of the Whole meeting on Tuesday, February 19th where the budget will be reviewed again. Watch for Special Township Watch Bulletin following that meeting.
WE HOPE EVERYONE HAS A FUN AND SAFE FAMILY DAY WEEKEND!
