Council is pleased to announce that the Township has received a grant from the Canada 150 fund to put an elevator in the municipal complex to allow handicapped access to the Council Chambers and the public computers on the second floor. Construction will begin once the grant has been received.
FIRE AND FIREWORKS PERMITS
Council would remind all residents that fire permits and permits to use fireworks need to be applied for. Fireworks permits require at least one week to issue as it is a requirement that the Fire Chief inspects the area where you wish to hold the display. A copy of the Fireworks By-law is available on the Council Page under By-laws. There is no charge for Fire or Fireworks Permits. If you are unable to come to the office to get a fire permit, please call and staff will work to find a solution.

The Council meetings scheduled for June 28th, 2016 and July 26th, 2016 have been cancelled.
Please take notice that the Conmee Community Network will be closed until the end of October. Council has temporarily rented the space to the engineering firm that is supervising the culvert replacement on Highway 11/17. If you wish to use the free WiFi, please bring your computers and we may be able to set you up in the hall. However, due to the current construction at the community centre, please confirm the availability with the office prior to coming to ensure that we can accomodate you. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The Township will not be renting the hall for the next little while until construction is finished. We are experiencing noise, dust and intermittent power outages, as well as having the heat and air conditioning disconnected. We will also be starting construction for the new elevator. We will post a notice when we will be renting the hall again.
NOTICE OF INTERMITTENT ROAD CLOSURE - HUME ROAD
Rehabilitation work on Hume Road will be starting shortly. This will require intermittent road closures. Residents may have to use Holland Road East to Torrie Road to Hume Road.
NEW LANDFILL OPERATIONS
Council has passed a By-law to implement changes to the operations of the Conmee Landfill site. Starting June 29, 2016 residents will be required to show an ID card with your civic address in order to enter the landfill site. This ID will be provided by the Township. You will also be required to show another piece of photo ID with your civic address (Emergency Number). Your ID will be recorded at each visit.
Although only one card will be issued per civic address, you may record up to four (4) person who may take your garbage and recycling into the landfill on your behalf. The Landfill Attendant will have a list of all authorized users. This will include persons such as children who may take the waste to the landfill for their parents but do not have ID with a civic address in the Township of Conmee. It is up to the resident to ensure that the list is kept up-to-date with the Municipal Office.
If you have your garbage and recycling picked up by another person or company for a fee, you must record that person or company as one of your four authorized users. If you are a person or company who picks up other people's garbage for a fee you must register with the Ministry of the Environment for a licence and provide a copy of that licence, as well as a list of your clients, to the Municipal Office.
Council will be holding an Open House to provide information on the new procedures on April 13, 2016 from 1:00 pm to 8:00. We will begin issuing cards at that time. The Municipal Office will also be open on Wednesday May 12th and May 19th until 8:00 pm and Saturday May 28th and June 18th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm to issue cards. Cards may also be obtained from the Municipal Office during regular office hours. The first card is free. Replacement cards will be $25.00.
If you are unable to come to the Municipal Office in person you may complete the Authorization Form below to have another person pick up the card for you.
