The Township of South Glengarry received a presentation from KPMG regarding options to optimize the snow plow routes, approved a new crosswalk in Williamstown, and approved a new policy to advance updated branding and signage throughout the Township.
Route Optimization Study – KPMG – Presentation
- KPMG conducted a study to determine opportunities to improve the overall efficiency of the Township’s current winter road maintenance service delivery model.
- The Township currently has 10 routes that are being plowed. The study explored options to station the plow trucks from either Airport Road Garage only versus from both Airport Road and North Lancaster Garage. It was concluded that the most efficient option would be to deploy routes from both North Lancaster Garage (3 Routes) and Airport Road Garage (7 Routes).
- After Council voiced some concerns over the proposed routes, KPMG will deliver a final report to Council in November 2020.
- Council approved the installation of a new sidewalk on SDG 17 in Williamstown between Williamstown Public School and Char-Lan High School and Administration will ask Upper Canada District School Board to provide financial support for the project. This new crosswalk would be an automated-lit crosswalk, which will increase safety.
- This project will cost $10,000 to complete and Council expressed a strong desire to have this completed in 2020 if possible.
- Council approved a new policy to advance the updated signage project for the Township.
- The new signage design and branding was approved in 2019 and this policy includes a few vocabulary changes to give clarity to the project.
Support for Municipality of Tweed’s Resolution
- The Township of South Glengarry will support the municipality of Tweed’s concerns regarding licensing for and distribution practices for medical cannabis growers in the municipality to ensure all are acting within the laws.
Council moved into a closed session. The next regular meeting of Council will be Monday, October 19, 2020.
