      Mayor Brian McGillis addressed Members of Council concerning truck traffic on Richmond Drive and the recent decisions taken by Members of Cornwall City Council at their meeting of Monday September 28, 2009, imposing a "No Truck Zone".

      Mayor McGillis indicated that a considerable amount of traffic analysis data was collected over the years by the Township of South Storming, concerning vehicles and commercial trucks using Richmond Road . In addition, the Township had retained the services of McIntosh Perry Consulting Engineers who prepared a Condition Assessment for Richmond Drive and Atchison Road and the report summarized that the roads generally have adequate pavement structure, in allowing the use of heavy transportation and vehicular traffic.

      It was also noted that the Lafarge and Bray quarries, which basically are the cause for residential dissatisfaction, have been in this location for a great number of years.

      In closing, Mayor McGillis requested Council's indulgence in stopping the clock regarding the 60 day notice period to the implementation of the "No Truck Zone" and allow the municipality, township and members of Lafarge and Bray companies to meet and attempt to bring this matter to a successful conclusion.

      That the subject matter be referred to Administration for updated report on Richmond Road issue and that the report be presented at the upcoming October 26th meeting.

      1. How does Cornwall compare to other cities with respect to the number of Councillors?
