Enbridge seeks to recover cost of Natural Gas Expansion in rural areas

In July 2015, Union Gas Limited filed an application (EB-2015-0179) to expand natural gas service to certain rural and remote communities. That application included a proposal to have existing Union Gas Limited customers pay a portion of the costs to connect new customers. Council did not support the Enbridge resolution and indicated that there is a provincial hearing process ongoing which will make a ruling on the application.

Rabies Update

Council received a report from Dufferin County on the status of rabies in Southern Ontario. In 2015 there was a confirmed case of rabies in a raccoon in Hamilton area. By March 2016 there were 70 raccoon and 1 fox confirmed as having rabies and by July there where 141 confirmed raccoon rabies, mostly in and around Hamilton.

The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) has undertaken a mass vaccination program, air dropping 220,000 baits that contain an oral rabies vaccine. At present, the surveillance and control zones do not include Dufferin County; however, both Peel and Wellington are within these zones.

surveillance and control zones as of July 2016

Pet owners are reminded that they are legally required to have their dogs and cats vaccinated for rabies. Additionally, livestock owners must ensure that horses, cattle and sheep are vaccinated if the animals have contact with anyone other than their regular caretakers (i.e. horses that go to competitions, livestock that go to fairs).
