Guelph-Eramosa briefs

Heritage appointments and SPMIF were a few of the topics discussed at Guelph-Eramosa Feb. 17 council meeting.

Heritage committee

Cory Woods was appointed as the council representative for the heritage committee at the council meeting.

“I think the heritage committee has really come into it’s own this term,” White said.  


Guelph-Eramosa Township will be sending a letter to environment and climate change minister Glen Murray requesting a one-year extension to use the Source Protection Municipal Implementation Fund (SPMIF). The staff is requesting they have until December 2016 rather than this coming December to use the fund. The projects the township hopes to use this fund for are the septic inspection program and site visits for threat activity verification.

“By extending the period in which we can incur eligible costs it will more closely align with the program parameters as originally laid out,” said Kim Wingrove, Guelph-Eramosa chief administrative officer.

 “At this time we don’t have an approved plan and they’re just putting those policies in place.”
