    NEW NURSING STATION

   Discussion continued.

 

Councillor Zanussi arrived and took his seat at Council.

iii) CELESE FLETCHER
    BEAR BREAK-IN - MCLAREN ISLAND

Ms. Fletcher spoke to Council regarding her concerns over the nuisance bear issue that specifically exists on McLaren Island. The number of nuisance bear incidents has increased dramatically and with the Ministry of Natural Resources no longer dealing with this issue other than through educational tools which the residents on McLaren Island have already adopted, the residents are seeking municipal help in pressuring the Ministry into taking action. The concern is that these bears are no longer afraid of humans and that the likelihood of a violent incident occurring in which either the bear or the human are killed is only a matter of time.

Council expressed its concern that the Ministry was not managing the issue to the satisfaction of all parties and therefore, directed staff to write a letter to the Minister seeking assistance in resolving this serious issue. As well, Council considered various options from continuing its educational program to implementing a bounty system. Council however, strongly believes that this is a Ministry issue and not a municipal responsibility as the Township has followed Ministry guidelines for bear-proofing its waste facilities for over a decade. As well, Council mentioned that the tradition in the Township is that residents are expected to rely on themselves and/or their neighbours to solve issues such as this due to the geography and distances involved. The expectation that the municipality can implement effective and efficient programs to deal with issues such as this are viewed as not being realistic or financially sound.

iv) ANTHONY DION - SIGN PERMIT

Anthony Dion was present to ask why his proposed sign location was not acceptable. Council asked staff to explain the deficiencies and why Council was not prepared to accept the proposal. Council recommended that Mr. Dion speak with the Manager of Public Works to see if he could come up with a more acceptable location.
