Clear Garbage Bag Program
Response to: Letter to the Editor, Take another look at clear bags, says clear bag proponent, November 25, 2015. As the time passes, the clear garbage bags program makes less and less sense. By introducing changes to the garbage by-law where garbage-bag-limit is going to be 2 free bags...
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,...
Frank Stronach
Broken and protected. Why is that so? I am referring to a fallen tree still partially alive on the Magna property on Wellington Street, just West of Leslie Street. My friend once told me, it signifies something. She told me Frank Stronach is a nice guy. She implied that I go and talk...
Writ
By K. Taylor, Aurora ON.  Ah the heady, golden days of August. The garden has peaked; there’s enough summer behind us to have long forgotten that nasty thing called winter, enough of it ahead of us to be mired in a hazy bliss. Somewhere outside a lawnmower hums, bees...
Voice of Aurora Radio
Yes, people of Aurora, if they build the Voice of Aurora Radio Station (FM), will you listen? Well, this dream somehow worked in the fictional movie Field of Dreams, where the main character heard a voice whispering to him "If you build it, he will come." However, the Voice of...
Trees
A proposal to remove 48 trees coming. A few weeks passed since the June 23rd, 2015 Aurora Town Council meeting. I am bothered. I am bothered a lot by the almost unanimous vote (by one) for the permit application MV-2015-05A-C to cut down forty-eight trees and potentially damage another sixteen trees...
