While we have access to several tools to help mitigate speeding traffic, the one tool that is currently not fullyavailable to us is Automatic Speed Enforcement(ASE) (aka Photo Radar). Over the past decade, in South West Oxford the vast majority of charges laid are for drivers travelling well in excess of the posted speed limit. The cost of providing police time for something that could be done through the use of technology is disturbing to our council. The Council feels that it would be far more effective to have police concentrate on other problems such as Break and Enters, illegal drugs and domestic problems. We need a way to address the poor behaviours and habits that are putting our citizens at risk and tying up much needed first responder resources that could be better utilized to improve the well-being of our communities. Speeding,particularly throughour small villages,creates community concerns for the safety andwellbeing of our children and other vulnerable members.We need your help. In keeping with this The Council of the Township of South-West Oxford duly moved and carried the following resolution at the regular meeting held on January 5, 2021: …RESOLVED that the Council of the Township of South-West Oxford provide direction to the Clerk to send a letter to the Premier, MPP Ernie Hardeman, AMO and all Ontario municipalities insupport of the use of Automatic Speed Enforcement (photo radar) by municipalities. Please help municipalities in the Province by passing the necessaryregulations for municipalities to use ASE (if they choose)that willbring about thedriving behavioural changes we need. We look forward to your help with this issue. Yours truly, Mary Ellen Greb, CAO c.c. AMO, Honourable Ernie Hardeman,Ontario Municipalities 20 21 February 19, 2021 Via Email The Honourable Ahmed Hussen Minister of Families, Children and Social Development House of Commons Ottawa, ON K1A 0A6 Dear Honourable Minister, RE:Supportthe Town of CarletonPlace resolutionthat the Government of Ontario Prioritize Children and Childcare as part of its Post Pandemic Recovery Plan ____ Please be advised that at their last regularly scheduled meeting on February 17, 2021, the Council of the Corporationof the Township of Perry supported the following resolution: “Resolution #2021-71 Moved by: Paul Sowrey Seconded by: Joe Lumley Be it resolved thatthe Council of the Township of Perry supports the resolution from the Town of Carleton Place requesting the Government of Ontario to: a.prioritize children and childcare as part of its overall post pandemic recovery plan; b.develop, adequately fund and release publicly a comprehensive plan that can support facilities through the provision of licensed childcare and early learning education; and c.provide increased funding to childcare provides reflective of COVID-19 operating cost increases to ensure a safe reopening and long-term sustainability for the sector.

Green eRecycling recently confirmed that the program has now been eliminated altogether, thereby ending the service. Collection bins have been removed. The program ran from 2017 to 2020 at five branch locations and in that time, it collected over 75,000 kilograms of e-waste. This benefitted the STEAM Centre through increased revenue and donations of re-usable items. The STEAM Centre continues to collect and refurbish desktops, laptops, and tablets in good condition which are donated to students, Indigenous communities and people with limited income as part of its re//BUILD.IT program. E-waste can either be dropped off by appointment at the STEAM Centre (located at 745 Talbot Street in St. Thomas) or they will arrange for pick-up. Appointments for both drop off and pick-up can be made by calling the Centre at 226-212-0048 or by e-mailing rebuild.it@steameducation.ca .
