‘PERC’ MAY BE A PERK FOR AYLMER YOUTH
Aylmer – The Aylmer Ministerial Association hopes to open a small coffee cafe downtown around December 1st in order to assist “at-risk” youth. Spokesperson Rev. Cam Watts, Aylmer Baptist Church, said the coffee shop, to be located in the former dining area of Peter’s Pizza, hopes to employ two managers and provide work and “life skills” to youth who are in need. Many varities of refreshments, even cappucinos, and baked goods, will be served – hours of operation will be 7 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday and 7 am to 2 pm Saturdays. The name ‘PERC’ is just a ‘catchy ‘ tag for the shop.
QUESTION? – Why not 2 Hazardous Waste Collection Dates Yearly?
Aylmer – Director of Operations Rod Tapp said the cost of having two collection days annually was quite prohibitve – the September expense amounted to 1% of the town’s yearly tax levy. Most Ontario municipalities just have one drop-off day a year. although the province is moving towards holding regional sites where one could drop off any day. October 20-23 is Bulk Garbage Week pick-up for Aylmer and Malahide. If bulk items aren’t placed out at the curb then, residents may contact Putnam Auto Center or Antonissen Trucking to pay for dropoffs there.
