Gravenhurst Bites from the most recent Town Council meeting:
Pandemic response update
C.A.O Glen Davies gave a timeline for re-opening of the municipality’s facilities. On Sept. 7, all municipal office staff will be back to work. On Sept. 13 the office will be open to the public and face-to-face appointments can be made. By Oct. 11, it should be “business as usual.” Davies said the gym at the YMCA is open and plans are made to put ice in at Centennial Centre. There is no date for re-opening of the Opera House yet, as there is some maintenance work going on, but “hopefully later in the fall or early winter,” said Davies.
Chief Financial Officer Val Sequeira was pleased to report that there has been “significant activities” in investments in infrastructure and that with so many facilities being closed, it has been an opportunity for upgrades and maintenance. And all work has been done on budget, Sequeira said. Councillor Sandy Cairns commented that the work she has seen around the community is “incredible.” She encouraged council to go down to the wharf since some painting was completed. Cairns said she has also received many positive comments from residents about the spruced-up playground.
