MONDAY’S AYLMER COUNCIL NOTES:
–Council approved a plan by Aylmer Parks and Facilities Department to purchase and install 12 Banners at mostly downtown locations. Each banner will have a “power” message and quote and the town logo. The Parks Dept. believes the banners will “spread a positive message, promoting community spirit”. Cost is $780.
-Council approved a motion by Councillor Jack Couckuyt to “review the summer student hiring policy”. Commented Councillor Couckuyt to Aylmer News:
“I feel that Aylmer should have a policy statement re hiring summer students locally, all things being equal. As I mentioned (Monday), the
review should look into doing this. Most other small municipalities have some kind of statement to this effect. The full debate on this will take place when staff presents their recommendations by the first meeting in March.”
