The Town of South Bruce Peninsula is hosting two public meetings to offer information about the Sauble Beach First Nation land claim.
Mayor John close says the mediation process has resulted in a proposal that will be presented to the taxpayers of South Bruce Peninsula. He says the town has made no decision, and wants to hear from residents before agreeing to anything.
Federal and provincial government representatives will be at the meeting to answer questions.
Close promises an overview of the mediation process, the current litigation filed against the municipality, and information on the Rankin Survey, which resulted in the land claim.
“The public has been asking for this information, and now the town is in a position to provide answers to their questions. Town council is encouraging everyone who lives in South Bruce Peninsula to attend one of the meetings being held on August 6,” says Close.
The meeting starts at 10am on August 6 at the Sauble Community Centre, with a second meeting at 2pm at the Wiarton Arena.
