Turton appointed MVCA representative for municipalities

Council here has agreed to appoint Town of Minto councillor Dave Turton as the township’s representative to the Maitland Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) and the Maitland Valley Source Water Protection Committee for a three year term.

A portion of Mapleton falls within the MVCA boundary. Mapleton, Minto and the Township of Wellington North share one appointee, explained CAO Patty Sinnamon in a report to council at the Jan. 27 meeting.

Wellington North and Minto have both appointed Turton to represent them.

In the past, Sinnamon noted Mapleton Council has permitted Wellington North and Minto to take the lead on the MVCA appointment as there are only a few properties within Mapleton that fall within the MVCA watershed.
