Council Meeting / Howe Bridge Overpass / Sandwich Town BIA AGM

Friends,

Please see some updates below:

City Council Meeting - 01/07/19

City Council met on Monday, January 7th and approved funding for several Business Improvement Districts in our community, including Sandwich Town and Wyandotte Ave. W. The funds total approximately $40,000.00 for both districts, but there may be some changes in the funds allocated to Wyandotte Ave W. depending on any cost fluctuations as the projects get rolled out.

Items such as benches, bicycle racks and waste receptacles will be added to Sandwich St. and Wyandotte Ave. W. All funds were provided for by the ASSOCIATION OF MUNICIPALITIES OF ONTARIO (AMO) Main Street Revitalization Initiatives Fund which is a provincial body, and all items should be installed by the end of summer, 2019. This is a one time grant from AMO and no City dollars will be used for this capital outlay.

First Council Question - Reviving the Sandwich Town CIP

Friends,

Yesterday I had my first council meeting where we debated many issues, including reintroducing fluoride into our water system. In case you missed it, council voted in favour of reintroducing fluoride by a vote of 8 to 3.

At the conclusion of the meeting, during question period, I took the opportunity to ask my first council question. It was as follows:

"That the following Council Question by Councillor Costante BE APPROVED, and that Administration BE DIRECTED to proceed with the necessary actions to respond to the Council Question in the form of a written report, consistent with Council’s instructions, and in accordance with Section 17.1 of the Procedure By-law 98-2011: 

CQ 28-2018: 
Assigned to City Planner Asks that Planning and Building department provide Council with an update on the status of the Sandwich Town Community Improvement Plan (CIP) and further determine if additional incentives and improvements could be made to the CIP. 
Carried."

We should receive a rep…

Thank You

Friends,

These past 24 hours have been very special.

I first want to thank Councillor Elliott for his service to the City and his lifelong service to our community. He has mentored thousands of youth and has already left a legacy that is second to none.

This campaign would not have been possible without the support (and great help) of my wife who organized all of our major events; from flyer drops to lawn sign blitzes to E-Day. She spent countless hours canvassing door-to-door with me as well. She's a ROCKstar.

To the residents who pushed me to run and who have volunteered hundreds of hours to the campaign: THANK YOU. We had an incredible team who were passionate, energized, committed, generous and very hardworking. It was a true team effort that I know will continue for years to come.

Lastly, to the residents of Ward 2, I am forever grateful for the trust and faith that you've put in me to represent you at City Hall. I promise to work hard every single day and relentlessly fo…

VOTE!!!
