Who would have thought a proposed cell phone tower could spark a squabble between City Councillors. Councillor Trevor Giertuga was visibly angry with Chair Iain Angus when it came to the procedural rules. Giertuga alleged Angus may have been controlling the debate to his advantage. Angus called Giertuga out of order and asked for an apology. The tiff was over Council being asked to write a letter to Industry Canada over the location of a Bell tower.
Some residents of Holly Crescent would like the city to hold off on resurfacing their street. They want the city to repair the street at the same time as their water mains and curbs. Administration told council they just don't have the funds to repair all of the curbs in the City. Several councillors visited the street to see the state of its infrastructure. Councillor Ken Boshcoff mentioned there are homeowners in Thunder Bay who are unhappy with new sidewalks being put in place, while places like Holly Crescent would like one.
