Collingwood councillors have been given an update on the judicial inquiry into the sale of half of Collus in 2012. At Monday evening's council meeting, Chief Administrative Officer Fareed Amin told councillors that the appointed judge, Frank Marrocco, is putting together a team to review documents. They will be conducting non-public work at 186 Hurontario Street. Public hearings will be held in council chambers. The hearings could start in late summer or early fall of this year.
Also on Monday night was a public meeting on a proposal for a six unit commercial building on the southeast corner of Hume and Raglan Streets. No one from the public made any comments.
Council has voted in favour of a committee recommendation to spend 80 thousand dollars from reserves for the purchase and installation of a centre hung LED score clock with newer technology than the current clock at the Eddie Bush Memorial Arena downtown. The town is buying the clock from the Barrie Colts.
And town hall is usually closed over the Christmas holidays, but this year, one or two staff will be in the main office on the first floor of town hall to offer minimal services. Town hall will be open from December 24 to the 31st not including the stat holidays.
