Mississippi Mills Council votes down Ultramar site plan

by Mississippi Mills Mayor John Levi

On May 6th Council voted down the Ultramar site plan delaying $1.5 to 2 million investment on Ottawa Street even though the Town Planner had recommended acceptance of the site plan because in his words Ultramar had made a lot of concessions over their standard corporate stations and were only asking for a very minor variance. Some Councillors objected to the fact that 6 forty watt light fixtures were only 95% cut off not 100%. 

Voting against the site plan were Councillors Edwards,McLaughlin,Wilkinson,Gilles,Cameron while Councillors Ferguson, Watters, Abbott, Dalgity and Mayor Levi supported the plan. Councillor Minnille was absent.

 A tie is a loss in council votes.
