usual report wording,“It is a financially challenging capital budget According to staff

that addresses the Town’s most critical infrastructure needs.”

The largest dollar projects scheduled for 2014 include:

•$6.2 million for the Robert C. Austin Operation Centre facility expansion on Trafalgar Rd.; again no detailed link here

•$2.2 million for pavement management projects (Dawson, Irwin, Eden Place, Mackenzie, Lewis, Weber);

probably in concert with halton region water sewer pipes, but again no links to know that either ???

•$830,000 Fourth Line (from 10 Sideroad to 15 Sideroad), upgrade to asphalt;

will this mean quarry trucks travel there now too ???

•$725,000, 17 Sideroad asphalt resurfacing;

is that where quarry trucks destroy the road &

the need for an improved intersection @ 4th line,

see above, needs widening for turning lanes etc.???

•$506,000, equipment replacement; a usual note each year but where does the old equipment go ???

•$500,000 to develop buy/lease partnership projects to enhance the Seniors Centres as well youth centre initiatives

... like buying the old A & P store presently under huge renovation ? for better traffic access with traffic lights or is most for Acton ???

Other items up for approval include a traffic signal light at 15 Sideroad/Eighth Line FIRE STATION intersection ;

which needs turning lanes & road widenings as well

right turn lane on Guelph St. at Albert St.,

where Hwy # 7 needs to be widened from Maple to Mill St

more Acton improvements,

bike lanes on Miller Dr.,

but no connecting links to Regional roads ???

The Town estimates 1,500 Town-owned trees were lost in the ice storm. How would you like to pay for the $750,000 replacement cost?

• Convince the Province's disaster relief fund org. to pay 45%

• Don't replace the trees 45%,

• Set up community fundraising 10%,

• Add a special levy on Town taxes 0%,
what town total increase
