(photo/Scott Nixon) VARNA – Municipality of Bluewater council appeared to settle its dispute over committee and board membership April 11, approving a revised list of appointments. The approved list is similar to one previously suggested by Bluewater Mayor Bill Dowson but had a few major revisions, including: • A merger of the Bluewater Landfill and Environment committees; • Appointing all members of council to a Bluewater Facility Committee; and • Appointing all members of council to the Bluewater (Lakeshore) Sewage Collection System Committee. All of council will also sit on the Landfill and Environment Committee with ad hoc committees potentially created by council based on priorities. Council may also create ad hoc committees within the facilities and sewage collection committees, based on priorities. Dowson had previously recommended that four of Bluewater’s 10 councillors sit on the landfill committee, the environment committee and the collection system committee. All of council will sit on Bluewater ’s Economic Development Committee (EDC), following Dowson’s previous recommendation. Council also voted April 11 to appoint Hay West Coun.

EDC, with Bayfield Coun. Geordie Palmer as vice-chairperson. The vote also approved Councillor-at-Large Tyler Hessel to the Bluewater Recreation Committee. Council passed Dowson’s recommendations for 13 other boards and committees without changes. As previously reported, the mayor of Bluewater makes recommendations for board and committee membership, but council must approve the recommendations for them to come into effect. Council was unable to reach a consensus before April 11, despite attempts to approve the recommendations in whole or in part. At the March 21 regular council meeting, a motion to approve Dowson’s recommendations for the Grand Bend and Area Sewage Treatment (GBAST) board failed in a 5-5 recorded vote. A motion at the same meeting to approve all of Dowson’s recommendations also failed 5-5. At a March 31 special council meeting, four councillors walked out before a scheduled presentation on the GBAST board, causing the meeting to be adjourned due to lack of quorum. According to Dowson, some members of council wanted to sit on committees other than those he picked, while others sought more council representation on certain committees. Dowson said in an interview April 14 he and Bluewater chief administrative officer Lori See BLUEWATER on page 2 Air Conditioning Performance Check Mopar Fuel Sytem Service $ 79 95 ∆ Service Includes labour to: Cleaning of deposits from injectors, intake valvues and combustion chambers to help restore fuel delivery and efficiency, help reduce fuel consumption and improve starting performance Manufacturer’s check ∆ offer available on all Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles.
