LITTLE LUCK FOR LECKIE

            As part of the requirement to attain zoning approvals, the Leckie Summers golf course and subdivision development at Flynn’s Corners was

once again before council on November 15th .

            Mayor Bev Matthews stated, “This is a good application. Something that is needed in our area.”

            However, due to the length of time the application has taken – moving back and forth between consultants, Trent Lakes and the County of Peterborough - the mayor indicated that “you almost have to be a millionaire just to make an application”.

            This project has been in the works for many years with no end, nor a groundbreaking, in sight.

PAY IT FORWARD

            Compensation was on the agenda at the November 15th council meeting. Should Trent Lakes councillors receive pay increases? CAO Lois O’Neill-Jackson, though supportive of this proposal, believes the decision must be an informed one.

            A motion was put forward to hire an expert to investigate the compensation of council members in similar jurisdictions. The cost for the consultation was estimated at $8,000. Council approved this study for 2017.
