THANK YOU MIDLAND FOR SPEAKING OUT!
Thank you Midland for speaking out on important policy matters which matter in our pursuit to get Midland back to work.
In our most recent poll, 85% of you were in agreement with the following statement - "I support & encourage Midland municipal leadership to manage and operate the resources in a responsible manner, adhere to the laws and regulations that govern such, and embrace “minimums only”.
Background: Historically, previous Midland Town councils have enthusiastically exceeded policy requirements and standards set by higher legislative authorities. Most other community leaders often reject these standards due to the significant costs incurred and the barriers they create to current and future community growth.
Midland already has one of the highest property tax rates in Simcoe County which is a direct result of repeatedly implementing flawed, comprehensive, misguided and over-reaching standards. These excessive policies and high rates discourage investment and continually contribute to the growing financial burden on local residents and businesses.
Septic inspection, backflow retrofits, Source Water Protection (SPP) By-laws and complicated shoreline studies are just a few examples of costly, misguided theories and policies significantly preventing our community from moving towards revitalization and growth.
Public input regarding the proposed new Back flow By-law is invited at the regular meeting of Council on Monday, April 27, 2015, to be held in the Council Chambers, 575 Dominion Avenue, Midland. The new By-law will be considered at a future Council Meeting.
A copy of the proposed By-law will be available for public viewing at the Midland Municipal Offices during regular business hours and on the Town’s website at www.midland.ca under ‘Public Notices’ (at the bottom of the Home page). Any written submissions for Council consideration must be received by the Clerk’s Office no later than 4:00 p.m. on Monday, April 27, 2015.
We encourage everyone to attend this important meeting and address Council with your concerns.
Midland matters, you matter and getting involved matters.
