Police Services Board notes
New business that arose from the Aug. 9 Hanover Police Services Board meeting were submitted to council for approval. The minutes noted new business including board member Sue Paterson bringing up concerns about speeding on 9th and 14th Sts. which had been brought to her attention and advised that
she will meet with the property owner to discuss the matter. In other business, the board noted that the survey in connection with the Town’s Strategic Plan states that 33 per cent of every Town tax dollar goes toward the cost of policing. It was not clear to the Board how this calculation was done. Sue Paterson agreed to discuss the issue with Town staff to clarify the matter.

Airport manager position
Minutes were introduced to council from the Saugeen Municipal Airport meeting from Aug. 22. The airport manager position has been posted to website and social media. Discussion ensued on the delivery. It was decided to set up as an Expression of Interest, to see what options are out there, or what individuals or firms can bring. It was decided to market it to the aviation industry, including post-secondary graduates (with the opportunity for mentorship), in addition to the public. Previous posts to be deleted and reissued, with an ad promoting the opportunity and to contact committee member Rebecca Hergert for the job description.

Member April Marshall provided a report to update members on conversations with Great Lakes Helicopters. Further discussion was had with Hanover Travel and we are awaiting response from Great Lakes Helicopters to host a meeting between the two organizations in an effort to organize collaboration for booking purposes, making it easier for the end user.

The evening’s meeting ended with a closed session in order to “discuss matters pertaining to litigation or potential litigation, including matters before administrative tribunals, affecting the municipality or local board.”
