Notice of Motion - Motion

Motion by Councillor Herron, Seconded by Deputy Mayor Senis

Whereas beautification and horticultural committees/societies are of great importance to the beauty and improvement of our Hamlets; and fundraising opportunities as well as volunteers are becoming more difficult to achieve/recruit; and

With rising fuel costs that will adversely affect the buying power of said organizations, it is important that the Township of Selwyn help these local organizations.

Whereas all of our groups struggle with the watering aspect of their hard work, and with limited staff time as resource to do such for them, the onus is upon the specific groups to maintain their gardens/planters;

Therefore, be it resolved that Council shall provide Beautify Buckhorn an additional $500 to go towards the watering of their geranium planters in addition to their normal funding and grant proceeds, provided that they continue to plant the geraniums in the Township of Selwyn.
