Airport, Turbines and Energy

Collingwood | by Catherine Thompson  

Council to discuss airport agreement, WPD Canada project and Collus Energy.

Collingwood councillors are expected to talk about the airport and money at Monday's meeting.

Council will consider recommendations from the Airport Services Board.

One suggestion is that the town provide a letter of intent to the Clearview Aviation Commerce Centre to develop an access agreement to the Collingwood Regional Airport.

The other two recommendations ask that the town of Collingwood's lawyers meet with legal counsel for Clearview Township and the CACC to find common ground relating to legal matters with WPD Canada.

Council will also consider whether the town's CAO should meet with officials from the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change regarding the airport's concerns with WPD's plans for eight wind turbines just west of Stayner.

Also at this meeting, Council will discuss whether to authorize the Treasurer to call in the promissory note from Collus PowerStream.

With the deregulation of the electricity industry a few years ago, the town received a promissory note from then Collus Power as a partial settlement of the sale of assets to the new corporation.

Because of declining interest rates, town staff recommend calling in the note so the so called liquid funds will be available to take advantage of any government grant opportunities so the taxpayer doesn't have to fund any project that may come forward.
