Aurora Ontario Municipal Elections 2018 - Election Sign Bylaw in effect. Election sign 'clutter' is undeniably an opportunity for election sign vandalism. I recall we had plenty of both, a plethora of signs and vandalism here in Aurora during the municipal elections back in 2014. It definitely wasn't hard to...
Perhaps after his intriguingly colourful international trip to India, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau needed a safe place to hide; a place where he would be in good company. It is just my honest assumption that this is what he was looking for. The criteria probably being totally different,...
Fence
Fences make good neighbours. Seriously? It doesn't seem like that in Aurora. In reality, I think most of us know why fence make good neighbours. When we moved to our first new home here in Aurora we didn't have a fence installed right away. Our first issue living in...
Internet-Voting
During the April 18, 2017 General Committee meeting, Aurora Town staff presented recommendations to our Town Council to consider moving forward with internet-voting only as an alternative voting method for the next Municipal Elections 2018. The majority of our Town Council opposed the idea. In the video here you...
Clear Garbage Bag Program

Tree Removal Policy
Tree removal policy for Aurora, exactly how effective? I always thought that the shiny metal tag with an engraved number and attached to the tree trunk meant something. More like this tree will be preserved or never be cut down. My imagination runs wild sometimes since I am always on the...
Road Salt
A great efficiency opportunity for the Town of Aurora. Eventually more salt on the secondary roads. Less spring cleaning, less sand dust. Less work for public service employees, thus less money spent. Aurora is switching to 100% road salt application and closing the loop on all the secondary roads this winter. Do you think...
The Aurora Council Meeting Agenda for this Tuesday October 27, 2015 will cover many items but there are a couple of items of interest that we thought to share. Consider the Notice of Motion by Cllr Kim proposing changes to the Town's Procurement Policy in attempt to address issues raised...
I am concerned with Aurora's Emerald Ash Borer Management. I did a lot of reading in the past few days and it bothers me because I am not sure what is the Town's clear objective, to wipe out the Emerald Ash Borer population in the Town of Aurora or prolong the...
Emerald Ash Borer
The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive insect that attacks Ash trees and it is a big concern. "Ash wood is used to make various tools, handles, baseball and softball bats and bows. It also makes very good firewood. Ash trees are also perfect material for old fashion shafts for bow and arrows." Source: Ash tree,...
