Green Space Management Policy #1214-02

At a previous council meeting, The Green Space Management Policy was discussed regarding the leaving of Christmas lights on municipal thoroughfares in the off season. Council discussed that they would like to see any lights on Municipal property removed at the end of the Christmas season. Council were then approached by a local group stating to Council that removal of all lights that group put up by the given deadline would be a difficult task and would require the hiring of a company to aid in removal of lights in trees around the community. Council decided to revisit this policy. Administration changed Section 4.15 of the policy to reword for the allowance of lights in trees to be allowed to stay in place all year. After a short discussion, Council agreed that this more appropriately highlighted the wishes of Council.

Coleman Post Office Discussion

Council briefly discussed the level of service at the Coleman Post Office at the January 26, 2021 meeting of Council and had further discussion on February 23, 2021. Council moved to have the item deferred to March 9, 2021 to allow any further correspondence to be received for Council's consideration. The Revitalize the Coleman Post Office document prompted readers to contact Council and request that they meet with Canada Post to prompt this discussion. Council received three letters prior to the February 23, 2021 agenda package being prepared. Two additional letters were received after the agenda package was prepared but prior to the February 23, 2021 meeting. No additional correspondence was received since then. Councillor Sygutek made a statement on what she thinks Council should do regarding the Coleman Post Office. “This was an interesting exercise in public input. I think we went above and beyond trying to get the public's opinion on whether or not we wanted the Coleman Post Office opened. I don't feel we have garnered enough information from the people of Coleman that fully opening the Coleman Post Office is something they want. I am going to let the issue rest.” Councillor Sygutek added that while it was good to allow for public input on this topic, not much information on what the public would like to see done was provided. “The responses that we got were all over the map. I'm glad this happened because it allowed the public to have some input. However, we didn't get a ton of input provided to us so as far as I'm concerned this issue isn't an imperative issue.” Councillor Sygutek then made a motion to accept the letters as information. That motion was carried.
