After a successful first term in Eatonia, town Councillors decided to hold a public meeting on November 29th to discuss any concerns residents may have. 

Town Administrator Cheryl Bailey said they had about 20 people come out for a productive discussion about the direction they would like to see Councillors take. 

"It was this councils first year in term," Bailey said. "so they just wanted to meet with the public and see if they had any issues and concerns."

Another topic of discussion was the town's plans to bring in a curbside recycling program. A representative from the company providing the service was there to answer the public's questions.

"We did have a sales-rep there from Tri-way, the company that's going to do our curbside recycling," Bailey said. "so that really helped answer a lot of questions. I think it went well, we haven't had any negative feedback from it."

Bailey said the recycling bins will be delivered to residents in the middle of December, with the first pick-up set to take place January 4th. 

"It's a huge thing," Bailey said. "I think it will be a great asset to us and it should reduce some of the garbage going out to the nuisance grounds too."

Councillors also sent out a call for those looking to get involved in the town's Emergency Measures Organization. Bailey said those who are interested can contact the town office.
