General Committee Update – January 12, 2021

With the provincial announcement yesterday and the issuance of a stay at home order as of 12:01 am Thursday January 14th, I know that many of you have questions about what this means for each of you individually, as a community and for the Town.

To ensure Council and residents have a clearer understanding, last night at General Committee I called for a special meeting of Council for next week Tuesday, January 19 at 7 pm to receive a staff report on the implications of the Provincial Order. I have asked our CAO to provide clarity on how the new orders impact our Town, residents and local businesses in areas such as staffing, access to facilities indoors and out, permissible activities and enforcement,.

I believe a full meeting of Council is the best course of action so that Council members can be informed and provide direction to staff so we can work together to ensure we remain safe.

In the meantime here is a link to a “CTV article – Click here” that will help answer a few of the questions.
