Next Step In Selling Site 41 Land

Regional | by Catherine Thompson  

Simcoe County Council holding special meeting to discuss Site 41, waste management.

Simcoe County council is holding a special meeting Wednesday to talk about Site 41 and waste management issues.

Warden Cal Patterson says tender is opening today for farmers wanting to buy two separate pieces of land that once was Site 41.

One is just over 143 acres and the other property is just over 112 acres.

Patterson says he has seen plenty of interest from farmers.

He adds the land had already been deemed agriculture and made surplus by county council and this is the next step in selling the properties.

Patterson tells us another piece of land, 86 acres, is being set aside until March for Dr. William Shotyk to present a business plan for an agriculture and water research facility.

County council will also hear presentations on options for curbside garbage pick up.

Warden Patterson says no decisions will be made today, it's just information gathering on alternatives to a user pay system which didn't pass.

He says it's been on hold and the county had to look at extensions on the curbside pick up which was a contract and time is passing so they have to look at where they go from here.
