Council was reminded, at the March 6th council meeting, that noise pollution will be an inevitable by-product of the construction upgrades taking place at the Iroquois Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Manager for Planning and Enforcement, Don Lewis, recommended that council “consider a noise exemption request to permit proposed construction activity that may occur from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday.”
Deputy-Mayor Jim Locke was assured that there was no one in close proximity.
Council agreed with the recommendation and granted the exemption.
Looking to the future, Mayor Steven Byvelds suggested that staff consider “amalgamating these noise by-laws into a South Dundas by-law.”
