Live reporting - Legislation for action, closing

1. Resolution 13-82 : Adoption of Town Council Procedures Manual
motion to move approval of this to the next full meeting, approved

2. Bylaw Amendment 13-724: Amendment to Chapter 82, Appendix A, List of Service Fee Rates- 1st Reading
move bylaw amendment to second reading, passed to 2nd reading
addition of a 7 days from the time of purchase to the fee listing

annual fee, not a dump it is a recycling center, for fiscal year, July to next June
would it be good to consider a punch card system, we did and it would create more issues
$10 for 7 days, what a bargain?

amendment to adjust to 10 days, motion passed

would consider adding days and hours, it will cost more money... I haven't gotten calls on this

Cerel - until you adopt this, you don't have procedures in place
procedural nuts and bolts stuff, may have to spend some time in a council session before understanding how it is used

you did move this already to the next full meeting
put this on the workshop for next week and approve then
