Here are the highlights from the Township of Drummond/North Elmsley Council meeting held on Tuesday, November 22, 2022.

Road Allowance Land Exchange
Council passed a resolution to declare a portion of the unopened road allowance between Concession 6 and 7 Lot 3 surplus to its needs. The road allowance is blocked for usage by the rail tracks. The applicant, D. Scissons, proposes to exchange land with the Township and move the road allowance away from the tracks. The intent is to create a one-acre parcel which could be sold to the owner of a land-locked parcel to give him access to a public road.

Roadside Spraying
The Township will not be spraying noxious weeds on its roads. Instead, the weeds will be mowed.

- Grant Agreement with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities for asset management funding in the amount of $50,000.
- Appointments to the Township’s Emergency Management Municipal Control and Program Committee to recognize recent staff changes.
- Animal Control Services Agreement with Laura Lowson. The new contract covers a $250/month increase.
