Tagging at Wahnekewening Beach: In August, Tiny’s By-law Department tagged objects left by Wahnekewening cottagers on the block of land owned by the Township in front of their properties. This block is very large, encompassing not only the sand beach, but the dunes behind the sandy area, and a swath of land behind the dunes where there were bushes and beach plants. Objects (fire pits, chairs, boats, beach umbrellas and the like) were tagged in the sandy area and in the dune and bush area. The tagging was unexpected, since the beach association had been in regular communication with the township about beach issues until 2017 and, when it had checked in 2018 and 2019 as to whether there were any issues, had been told there were none. After the tagging, 75% of the articles were removed by the cottagers. On August 26th, the beach association president and several affected owners protested the township’s action in the open deputations’ section of the Committee of the Whole Meeting. There were also deputations about the removal of the widely used volleyball net on the sand beach. The upshot is that there is to be a meeting between representatives of the beach association and the township.
Road improvement agreement between the Township of Tiny and the Sarjeant Company: In 2011 the Township and The Sarjeant Company entered into a road improvement agreement regarding French Road, which Sarjeant intended to use as a haul road for the operation of two licensed pits in Parts of Lots 78 and 79 Old Survey (south and east of the Teedon Pit), Concession 1 Township of Tiny. The improvements were not made, and the pits were not used within the designated time. In 2019, Sarjeant decided to make the pits operational and thus approached the Township about executing an Amending Agreement to the French Road Improvement Agreement. In August, Council decided to go ahead with the Amendment.
Playground to be installed at Balm Beach: Council and staff have decided to use the Main Street Revitalization Fund that the Township was awarded ($48,072,93) together with the $18,716.07 raised by the community at the Balm Beach Family Fun Days in 2018 and 2019 to construct a playground installation at the Park at Parkside Road in Balm Beach. The only cost to the township will be staff time to hold consultation meetings and to develop the tender for equipment.
