Total taxes to rise by $84 on average Minto residence

ERIN - A deal has been struck with Halton Crushed Stone (HCS) that would enable expansion of its gravel pit south of Erin village, if it is approved by a provincial tribunal. Negotiations between the Town of Erin and the company have resulted in an agreement that will be discussed behind closed doors during the April 16 Erin council meeting, which starts at 6:30pm. Mayor Allan Alls said that following the closed session, details will be made public. “I will be reporting out next Tuesday and going through the whole memorandum of understand-

ing,” he said. A case management conference will be held by the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) at the Town of Erin offices on June 17 at 10am, which could result in approval of the plan. “We actually got a pretty good deal, or at least as best as I could get,” said Alls. “I know there will be people unhappy, and there’s not much I can do about that. I just want it over and cleaned up. I started fighting this pit in 1975.” Members of the public may be allowed to make presentations at the LPAT conference, but they must register and provide a copy of their SEE GRAVEL PIT » 33

Drexler said the space Big Brothers Big Sisters is in now is quite small. “Without the help of people like Allan, who make waves very fast, our momentum would be much slower,” she said. “So we really appreciate everything that he’s done.” The McGinn Brothers Big Game is hosted by Tye, Brock and Jamie McGinn, three brothers and NHL hockey players from Fergus. “I reached out to the guys and said, ‘Guys listen, you guys aren’t here all year because you’re playing hockey all over, but we need you guys and your name to be the vehicle that brings in the money,’” Boynton explained.

that was raised here in Centre Wellington was pretty awesome for the community really,” said Dylan Cunningham, who nominated Boynton for the award. “It’s nice to see someone come up and do what he can for the community and I think it’s a great thing that he’s doing, a great cause.” Boynton organized the first McGinn Brothers Big Game last summer, raising over $120,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters Centre Wellington. It all began after Boynton moved to Fergus and heard about youth suicides in the community. He asked Big Brothers Big Sisters Centre Wellington executive director Kristen Drexler what she needed to help local youths. “She said ‘are you going to give me half a million dollars for a build-

FERGUS - This year’s Centre Wellington Citizen of the Year is Allan Boynton, of the McGinn Brothers Big Game. “I’ve always been involved,” Boynton said after he was surprised with the award on April 8 at the Big Brothers Big Sisters office in Fergus. “If you’re going to move somewhere, then you take the initiative of being part of the community and you help and you do your part.” Boynton, 36, moved to Fergus about two years ago with his family. He has served on East Garafraxa council and raised money for political parties. “He pretty much took Fergus by the reins and kind of did a lot for Big Brothers Big Sisters and money

PALMERSTON - A new county-operated child care centre was officially opened here last week. In 2015, the Upper Grand Board School District (UGDSB) was approved for $1.54 million dollars through the Ministry of Education’s Capital Funding for New Construction of Child Care program. The new Palmerston Child Care and Learning Centre, located beside Palmerston Public School on Prospect Street, provides 49 new child care spaces for infants, toddlers and preschool aged children. The centre, which opened in October 2018, is operated by the County of Wellington. Officials from the UGDSB and the County of Wellington officially opened the centre on April 17. “Child care is becoming an increasingly integrated system. We were pleased to work together with the county to help meet the needs of our families,” said UGDSB chair Linda Busuttil. Luisa Artuso, director of the county’s early years division, noted in a press release, “We are grateful for this opportunity to expand much needed high-quality licensed child care spaces in Palmerston for county resi-

dents.” Wellington County councillor and social services David chair committee Anderson said, “This is a facility of high-quality, licensed child care that supports young children in learning and developing and their well-being.” “We know how important quality child care is to families,” said Warden Kelly Linton. “There is strong evidence that the participation of women in the labour force is good for the economy and

accountable, high-quality child care is good for child well being. Centres like this one support jobs and investment, contribute to increased family income and help reduce child poverty,” the warden continued. “As a county it’s our goal for each of our member municipalities to have highquality, available, affordable and accessible child care,” Linton added.

tory e-learning courses. They don’t work for everyone and the e-learning courses that we have now, I find, are not very user friendly and you want us to take four, so that would not be very effective and it’s not everyone’s learning style.” Students at the Centre Wellington protest asked what the new e-learning courses will mean for students who don’t have access to reliable internet at home. “About 12 per cent of Canadian homes don’t have access to the internet,” said protest organizer Rachel Routly. “This puts already-disadvantaged students at an even lower start when they’re trying to pursue their education if they cannot access their course work at home.”

WELLINGTON COUNTY Chanting “Education is a right; We will not give up the fight,” students from Norwell District Secondary School walked out of class on April 4 to protest the Ontario government’s planned education changes. Students from Centre Wellington District High School (CWDHS) also walked out of class to protest outside the Fergus office of WellingtonHalton Hills MPP Ted Arnott. “Our education is the one thing we always thought we would have, but we were wrong,” said Centre Wellington protest organizer Jayden Scott. “The quality of our education M P away from us if we * CO is being taken LI M R don’t put up a fight.

“We need to prove that we do care about our education and we need to use our voices to have the changes that we demand.” The action was part of a protest by students at 600 Ontario schools in opposition to the province’s plans, including larger class sizes and mandatory online courses. The province-wide protest involved elementary and high school students and was organized by students on social media under the hashtag #StudentsSayNo. At Norwell, the protest was organized by student council members. “We’re walking out because we’re not okay with the changes that Doug Ford is making to our education,” said student council president Lindsay Lacroix. “We disagree with the manda-

MINTO – Town council here has expressed “grave concern” about the possibility of the provincial government reducing or eliminating the municipality’s future allotments under the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund (OMPF). A resolution passed on April 16 indicates the provincial grant of $1.63 million in 2019 is equal to nearly 34 per cent of the town’s municipal property tax revenue. “A 33.96% increase in the municipal property tax rate would increase the municipal component of property taxes paid for an average household by $403 per year,” the resolution states. Last December, the province announced it was reviewing the OMPF pro-

gram, which provides annual funding allotments to municipal governments to help offset operating and capital costs. Under pressure from municipal governments to provide information on 2019 allocations prior to setting budgets, finance minister Vic Fedeli, in a Feb. 13 letter, announced funding under the program would “remain virtually the same as in 2018, while allowing for annual data updates and related adjustments.” The letter indicates that while the review would continue, any changes would not take effect until the 2020 budget, and substantial advance notice would be provided. “Municipalities were further advised that the overall spending envelope for

raised through taxes) of $5,286,976, an increase of $339,569 or just under 7% from the budgeted 2018 levy of $4,947,407. Minto Mayor George Bridge stated, “The 2019 budget still moves Minto forward with numerous capital projects, but keeps tax increases manageable for our residents.” Finance chair David Turton said, “This budget was very difficult to put together this year. There were many unknown grant and funding opportunities, making it hard to put together a capital funding plan. Our staff has worked hard on this budget and we appreciate them very much for their effort.” Minto’s 2019 tax-supported operating budget (excluding water and sewer operations) includes a net transfer of $443,000 to reserves. The budget includes a net transfer to capital reserves of $1,725,000 to fund the $5.5-million capital plan. Capital expenditure highlights

MINTO - The average residential taxpayer here will pay an additional $84 in 2019. Minto council passed the town’s 2019 budget with an overall tax increase of 2.8% for an average residential property assessed at $233,000. The estimate of an $84 increase in local taxes includes Wellington County and provincial education taxes. It assumes there will be no changes to tax policies set by the county and that education tax rates follow past trends, the town states in a press release issued following council’s approval of the budget on April 2. Minto treasurer Gordon Duff said about $48 of the $84 increase can be attributed to Town of Minto spending. With total spending of $6,275,893, the budget calls for a total levy requirement (the amount to be

Fall is just around the corner and, although it means the end of summer, there is so much to look forward to; from autumn skies to pumpkin pies and, of course, the 183rd annual Fergus Fall Fair. As you flip through this book you’ll see a number of events and friendly competitions. There is something for everyone to showcase their talents and skills. I encourage you to find some sections and classes that pique your interest and take advantage of the opportunity to exhibit as part of this year’s fair. There are many sponsors in and around the community that generously support the fair each year. The donations these companies, families, and individuals make are what enable this incredible fall tradition to run year after year. Thank you so much for your continued support. I would also like to thank all of the volunteers, committee members and directors who spend hundreds of hours working throughout the year, and especially on the Fair weekend, to put on this event. Your hard work and dedication is evident in the array of displays, activities, and events we offer. Join us September 13th, 14th and 15th for another fun, educational, and exciting weekend at the Fergus Fall Fair. It is a true community event that you won’t want to miss!

Ambassador’s message Jade Ritter

2018/2019 Fergus Fall Fair Ambassador Welcome to the one hundred and eighty third Fergus Fall Fair! It has been a privilege to represent our community as the 2018/2019 Fergus Fall Fair Ambassador. I am amazed at how quickly the year has gone by and what an incredible experience I have had. My role as the Fergus Fall Fair Ambassador has given me the opportunity to share my love of agriculture with others and the important role it plays within our lives. Throughout the year I have had the privilege of representing the Fergus Agricultural Society at a variety of local and provincial events. Along the way I have met many members of our community, and formed lifelong friendships with other ambassadors from across Ontario. I would like to extend a huge thank you to the Fergus Agricultural Society for their endless support and kindness this year. I appreciate the countless hours you have put into making this year’s fair a success and your dedication to preserving such a wonderful tradition. I would also like to thank the Ambassador Committee, as well as past ambassadors, for their guidance. The fair would not be possible without the countless volunteers and community sponsors who have donated their time and resources. The same is true for the young, and the young at heart, who so faithfully bake, craft, create, grow, train, and show, in order to give others a glimpse into rural life, as well as the community members who attend the fair each year. It’s truly amazing to see how the fair brings our community together to celebrate the rural way of life. I hope everyone is able to come out to this year’s fair and enjoy some delicious pumpkin pie, under what is sure to be a beautiful autumn sky!

Sincerely,

238 St. Andrew St. W, Fergus

Total taxes to rise by $84 on average Minto residence

ERIN - A deal has been struck with Halton Crushed Stone (HCS) that would enable expansion of its gravel pit south of Erin village, if it is approved by a provincial tribunal. Negotiations between the Town of Erin and the company have resulted in an agreement that will be discussed behind closed doors during the April 16 Erin council meeting, which starts at 6:30pm. Mayor Allan Alls said that following the closed session, details will be made public. “I will be reporting out next Tuesday and going through the whole memorandum of understand-

ing,” he said. A case management conference will be held by the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) at the Town of Erin offices on June 17 at 10am, which could result in approval of the plan. “We actually got a pretty good deal, or at least as best as I could get,” said Alls. “I know there will be people unhappy, and there’s not much I can do about that. I just want it over and cleaned up. I started fighting this pit in 1975.” Members of the public may be allowed to make presentations at the LPAT conference, but they must register and provide a copy of their SEE GRAVEL PIT » 33

Drexler said the space Big Brothers Big Sisters is in now is quite small. “Without the help of people like Allan, who make waves very fast, our momentum would be much slower,” she said. “So we really appreciate everything that he’s done.” The McGinn Brothers Big Game is hosted by Tye, Brock and Jamie McGinn, three brothers and NHL hockey players from Fergus. “I reached out to the guys and said, ‘Guys listen, you guys aren’t here all year because you’re playing hockey all over, but we need you guys and your name to be the vehicle that brings in the money,’” Boynton explained.

It all began after Boynton moved to Fergus and heard about youth suicides in the community.

PALMERSTON - A new county-operated child care centre was officially opened here last week. In 2015, the Upper Grand Board School District (UGDSB) was approved for $1.54 million dollars through the Ministry of Education’s Capital Funding for New Construction of Child Care program. The new Palmerston Child Care and Learning Centre, located beside Palmerston Public School on Prospect Street, provides 49 new child care spaces for infants, toddlers and preschool aged children. The centre, which opened in October 2018, is operated by the County of Wellington. Officials from the UGDSB and the County of Wellington officially opened the centre on April 17. “Child care is becoming an increasingly integrated system. We were pleased to work together with the county to help meet the needs of our families,” said UGDSB chair Linda Busuttil. Luisa Artuso, director of the county’s early years division, noted in a press release, “We are grateful for this opportunity to expand much needed high-quality licensed child care spaces in Palmerston for county resi-

dents.” Wellington County councillor and social services David chair committee Anderson said, “This is a facility of high-quality, licensed child care that supports young children in learning and developing and their well-being.” “We know how important quality child care is to families,” said Warden Kelly Linton. “There is strong evidence that the participation of women in the labour force is good for the economy and

accountable, high-quality child care is good for child well being. Centres like this one support jobs and investment, contribute to increased family income and help reduce child poverty,” the warden continued. “As a county it’s our goal for each of our member municipalities to have highquality, available, affordable and accessible child care,” Linton added.

They don’t work for everyone and the e-learning courses that we have now, I find, are not very user friendly and you want us to take four, so that would not be very effective and it’s not everyone’s learning style.” Students at the Centre Wellington protest asked what the new e-learning courses will mean for students who don’t have access to reliable internet at home. “About 12 per cent of Canadian homes don’t have access to the internet,” said protest organizer Rachel Routly. “This puts already-disadvantaged students at an even lower start when they’re trying to pursue their education if they cannot access their course work at home.”

Students from Centre Wellington District High School (CWDHS) also walked out of class to protest outside the Fergus office of WellingtonHalton Hills MPP Ted Arnott. “Our education is the one thing we always thought we would have, but we were wrong,” said Centre Wellington protest organizer Jayden Scott. “The quality of our education M P away from us if we * CO is being taken LI M R don’t put up a fight.

“We need to prove that we do care about our education and we need to use our voices to have the changes that we demand.” The action was part of a protest by students at 600 Ontario schools in opposition to the province’s plans, including larger class sizes and mandatory online courses. The province-wide protest involved elementary and high school students and was organized by students on social media under the hashtag #StudentsSayNo. At Norwell, the protest was organized by student council members. “We’re walking out because we’re not okay with the changes that Doug Ford is making to our education,” said student council president Lindsay Lacroix. “We disagree with the manda-

A resolution passed on April 16 indicates the provincial grant of $1.63 million in 2019 is equal to nearly 34 per cent of the town’s municipal property tax revenue. “A 33.96% increase in the municipal property tax rate would increase the municipal component of property taxes paid for an average household by $403 per year,” the resolution states. Last December, the province announced it was reviewing the OMPF pro-

gram, which provides annual funding allotments to municipal governments to help offset operating and capital costs. Under pressure from municipal governments to provide information on 2019 allocations prior to setting budgets, finance minister Vic Fedeli, in a Feb. 13 letter, announced funding under the program would “remain virtually the same as in 2018, while allowing for annual data updates and related adjustments.” The letter indicates that while the review would continue, any changes would not take effect until the 2020 budget, and substantial advance notice would be provided. “Municipalities were further advised that the overall spending envelope for

raised through taxes) of $5,286,976, an increase of $339,569 or just under 7% from the budgeted 2018 levy of $4,947,407. Minto Mayor George Bridge stated, “The 2019 budget still moves Minto forward with numerous capital projects, but keeps tax increases manageable for our residents.” Finance chair David Turton said, “This budget was very difficult to put together this year. There were many unknown grant and funding opportunities, making it hard to put together a capital funding plan. Our staff has worked hard on this budget and we appreciate them very much for their effort.” Minto’s 2019 tax-supported operating budget (excluding water and sewer operations) includes a net transfer of $443,000 to reserves. The budget includes a net transfer to capital reserves of $1,725,000 to fund the $5.5-million capital plan. Capital expenditure highlights

MINTO - The average residential taxpayer here will pay an additional $84 in 2019. Minto council passed the town’s 2019 budget with an overall tax increase of 2.8% for an average residential property assessed at $233,000. The estimate of an $84 increase in local taxes includes Wellington County and provincial education taxes. It assumes there will be no changes to tax policies set by the county and that education tax rates follow past trends, the town states in a press release issued following council’s approval of the budget on April 2. Minto treasurer Gordon Duff said about $48 of the $84 increase can be attributed to Town of Minto spending. With total spending of $6,275,893, the budget calls for a total levy requirement (the amount to be
