The Town of Tillsonburg feels that a solution developed by the province to help solve the housing crunch in the Greater Toronto area may have an impact on smaller communities. The proposed changes would mean development fees could not be charged for second units being constructed in homes and standards for dealing with issues such as parking, occupancy and construction dates, which are normally governed by municipalities could be over ruled by the province. Also of concern to municipalities is that the owner of the building that constructs the second unit does not have to occupy one of the units. The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing is asking for feedback and would like to hear responses by the 9th of June.

The family of a local sportsman who passed away in January of last year wants his memory preserved with a new outdoor sports facility including an outdoor rink. The JL Scott McLean Memorial Trust already has $150,000 in donations and pledges. They would like to extend the refrigeration piping from the current arena pads so the new pad could operate 4 months of the year. The original cost to construct the pad is in the range of a quarter million dollars and another $200,000 would be needed if boards and netting was placed to allow for pick up hockey. The Town would be responsible for yearly maintenance which is projected to be in the $10,000 range, and have asked staff to bring back a report to see if the project can be done.
