A controversial property proposed for a housing development will again be on the table for Brighton council tonight.
A resident living next to the so called Lakeside Landing subdivision property will ask that the fill that has been dumped onto the property be immediately removed.
The resident says an Environmental Assessment report done in 2014 shows some of the fill could be contaminated with hydrocarbons and asbestos.
The resident says the water in 37 wells near the property could be polluted.
The Lakeside Landing property is owned by Mark Walas. The Mayor does not participate in any council debate on the matter.
Also, the transparency of discussions by Brighton council will be up for discussion at its meeting tonight.
Council will vote on a Martinello/McMurray motion to release an “insurance and other legal claims” report to the public.
The councillors believe Brighton taxpayers should see how much money is being spent on lawyers.
Meanwhile, the hiring of consultants to recruit a new CAO and a Public Works Director will be up for debate.
Brighton’s Deputy Clerk will present a report on the process involved and agreements signed before the consultants were hired.
Brighton council held a controversial closed meeting with the consultants last Tuesday.
Meanwhile, councillors Martinello and Baker will give notice of a motion to suspend the recruitment process until a later date.
