Message from the Mayor – November 15, 2021 (Click to view PDF version)
The Halloween Celebration hosted by the Recreation Committee was a great success! The celebration was held outside the Community Centre and the costume contest had many impressive submissions. Our three winners are pictured here. Thank you to everyone who donated to the celebration at the Municipal Office before Halloween. We hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween – especially on one of the nicest weather days we’ve had in years!
I attended our Remembrance Day Service at the Callander Legion Branch 445 on the 11th and was honoured to see those in attendance there to remember our veterans and the fallen. The legion members did a wonderful job of providing us all an opportunity to remember. We thank them for their opportunity to gather at the Legion after the ceremony; it was great to see so many in attendance.
We are getting deeper into our budget process, as staff anticipate presenting the draft 2022 budget at the next few Council meetings. This year, we really did want to focus on hearing from the public and continue to encourage you to submit more ideas, suggestions and opinions regarding the budget by e-mailing email@example.com or by writing a letter to 280 Main St N, Callander, ON, P0H 1H0. It is anticipated that the 2022 budget will be passed in December.
We ask that you continue doing your part and get vaccinated as soon as possible, and you can stay tuned on provincial announcements and restrictions here: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/zones-and-restrictions. There have been several pop-up mobile vaccination clinics throughout the District, making vaccinations easier to access for all. For information on vaccination clinics and walk-in options, please visit: https://www.myhealthunit.ca/en/health-topics/covid-19-vaccine-appointments.asp#ClinicSchedule
We continue to request that patrons, instead of coming into the office, try to use alternative methods for municipal services as much as possible, to reduce the community exposure and non-essential visits. Some examples are provided by visiting the following link: https://www.mycallander.ca/en/news-alerts/show/municipal-services-update-following-stay-at-home-order-
As always, and I cannot stress this enough, continue to support our local businesses where you can and please continue to follow all safety protocols, as recommended. Stay safe.
Mayor Robb Noon
