Please be advised that the Highway 43 East Waste Commission, at their Executive Meeting on Friday, October 29th, 2010, discussed the issue of illegal dumping of garbage on public roadways. The Commission encourages each and every municipality to advise their resident's that this is illegal, and further, any person caught doing this will be charged under the Environmental Protection Act, Section 179(1), and fined up to $250.00, Section 228(3)(a). Further, assistance from the public is needed to identify individuals who may be illegally dumping their waste.
Council wants to review the land use bylaw as there are a number of types of developments that are not addressed in the current bylaw. Council is asking for a volunteer committee to review the bylaw and compare it to other small community bylaws. The committee would also ask for input from members of the community. Upon completion of the review, the committee would prepare a report and present it to council with recommendations for change. Council would then consider the recommendations and hold a public hearing to get further input from members of the community.
