City council has directed staff to engage the public about the implementation of a new bylaw that would permit the use of low-speed vehicles (LSV) on city streets.

LSV are generally described as electric vehicles that are designed to run at a maximum speed of 40 kilometres an hour, and are typically used for short trips.

These types of vehicles were previously prohibited from operating within Ontario, however, under a 10 year provincial pilot project that began on July 1, 2017, LSV are permitted to operate within municipalities where a by-law has been passed authorizing their use.


Council has approved the installation of five Little Free Libraries at area parks.

About $2,000 will be reallocated from the 2022 Special Activities Operating Budget to cover the costs for five concrete base pads to provide the infrastructure at Germain Park, Twin Lakes Park, Wiltshire Park, Centennial Park and Marcin Park.


City staff has been directed to issue a Negotiated Request for Proposal (NRFP) from qualified bidders for food and organic waste processing.
