In Davidson Town Council’s Strategic Plan, one of the values identified was transparency in municipal decision making, finances, and communication. Council’s Corner will focus on these strategic priorities as it relates to the Strategic Action Plan:
Engagement, Communications and Team Work
The Town of Davidson has been approved for the Canada Summer Jobs Grant; double what we received in 2022. Summer staff are now all in place.

Council passed first reading of a revised Garbage Bylaw to adopt new landfill rates and change the garbage fee from $5/month to $13/month. It is proposed that these new rates will come into effect July 1, 2023.
The rubber curbs on Washington Avenue will be removed in the near future.
The Water Treatment Plant reservoirs were cleaned in early May. A robot was used so that the cleaning could be done without a service disruption.

The new radar sign has arrived to replace the one damaged in the vehicle accident at the corner of Government Road and Railway Street.
