MetroX Airport Service Update

The tender for the purchase of nine new buses to operate the proposed MetroX Airport service closed mid- August, with three manufacturers submitting bids.
Following review and evaluation of the bids, a tender award report will be forwarded to Regional Council for approval this fall.

Additionally, the tender for the construction of the Fall River Park & Ride lot to be serviced by this route, at Perrin Dr. /Fall River Service Rd., is currently posted with a closing date of Sept. 9, 2011. Following tender approval by Council, ground preparation should begin later this fall/winter, to allow time to complete the lot prior to the proposed launch of the service in May 2012.

The Scouting Year Approaches!

The new Scouting year is upon us and Registration has been fixed for 2nd Wellington Scout Group. This will happen on September 14th and takes place in Wellington Firehall. If your child goes to Holland Road Elementary or Oakfield Elementary, then this is the group for you! If he/she goes to Ash Lee Jefferson Elementary, then check out 1st Riverlake Scout group. Scouting is a great organization for your child teaching him outdoor and leadership skills in a safe adventurous environment.
