Council approves Canada Day spending limit

by Patrick Raftis

MAPLETON - Canada’s 150th anniversary year may be winding down, but July 1 will continue to be a big day here in 2018.

On Sept. 26 Mapleton council approved a recommendation from the township’s economic development committee (EDC) to allocate up to $15,000 for the planning and implementation of 2018 Canada Day activities.
However EDC member councillor Lori Woodham noted council does have some leeway in the spending.
She noted the committee’s recommended allocation of “up to” $15,000 gives council “an opportunity to maybe move it in a little on the scale.”

The EDC minutes also contain a recommendation to create a request for proposals for development of the 2019 Mapleton Community Guide.
Woodham noted “a lot” of responses to a questionnaire included in the 2017 guide suggested “it was a little bit too much back to back.”
Woodham said the committee recommended publishing guides to coincide “with terms of council … with the next one being in 2019.”
A staff report was scheduled for presentation at the Oct. 10 meeting.
