Whereas the City of Cornwall should always strive for the safety of all citizens at all times; and

Whereas traffic flow throughout the city often poses a potential risk to both drivers and pedestrians; and

Whereas poorly designed intersections present an even greater challenge to traffic flow; and

Whereas the intersection at Vincent Massey and Tollgate is an awkward design.

Now therefore be it resolve that a roundabout at the corner of Vincent Massey Drive and Tollgate Road be added to the 2022 budget deliberations as part of the Capital budget; and

Now therefore be it further resolved that a complete costing of the project be included in the budget submission.

Moved By: Councillor Claude McIntosh

Whereas City Council voted to relocate locomotive engine 17 to the railway museum of eastern Ontario from its current location on city property near Ninth Street and Brookdale Avenue; and

Whereas a group of interested persons in the city has expressed interest in making a presentation and providing a plan to refurbish and keep the engine in the city; and

Whereas, because of COVID-19 restrictions, the said group was not able to do so prior to our budget meetings.

Now therefore be it resolved that the transfer of the engine to Smiths Falls be put on hold until this group of citizens is able to make its presentation to Council.
