Citizen Engagement and Communication

Joanne Hyde and Bob Mitchell of the Mono Research Advisory Committee (MRAC), a committee of Council, made a presentation on Citizen Engagement and municipal communications. The committee requested that Council consider a proposed Engagement Charter and that the Town "Commit to engage all residents within the Town of Mono in the decisions that impact our quality of life by endorsing the Our Mono Engagement Charter's vision, mission and recommendations".

Community Engagement model

Council generally supported the concepts in the presentation and requested the CAO continue to bring forward enhancements to Citizen Engagement and Council communications.

Speeding Trucks on Highway 89 through Rosemont

Council received letters from Mono residents expressing concern with large trucks exceeding the speed limit on Hwy 89 through Rosemont. The letters asked that Council increase police patrols on that stretch of Hwy 89 as well as consider other traffic calming techniques in an effort to reduce the hazard to pedestrians and other traffic.

Council agreed to forward these concerns to the Police Services Boards, the OPP and the Ministry of Transportation.
