Guelph City Council tonight, will get the details of another apartment tower for the city’s downtown.
The plan is for a 14 story apartment building on a vacant lot on Yarmouth Street.
It would include 89 units and a 65 space underground parking garage. Another 20 parking spaces would be located in the Baker Street public parking lot.
No decision will be made at tonight’s meeting.
And a report to Council tonight from an investigator, dismisses a complaint that a closed meeting of council was held on January 25th, in contravention of the open meeting requirements under the Municipal Cct.
Someone complained that 5 councilors: Salisbury, Allt, Downer, Gordon and Piper, left a closed meeting of council, and held their own, improper closed meeting.
The investigator says the complainant provided no evidence to support the claim, and there was only minutes between the conclusion of the closed session of council, and the resumption of the open portion of the meeting.
And even if some members of council met after the closed session, it would not be considered a “meeting: of council.
But the investigator does point out that the term “meeting”, isn’t really defined in the Municipal Act.
