The South Simcoe Arts Council will be attending the Committee of the Whole meeting of the Council, Town of New Tecumseth tomorrow evening Monday, March 7, 2016 Council Chambers 7:00 PM Church and Wellington Streets, Alliston
The Town Council of the Town of New Tecumseth does not appear to circulate notice of meetings to organizations such as ours wishing to apply for grants . They simply post the Agendas on their website. I heard only late yesterday through the good graces of a former council member that the Town of New Tecumseth was bringing the subject matter back to council.
We normally apply for a grant from the Town as does the Gibson Centre at this time of year. I enquired about the Application Form for the Grant and I was advised that it was not ready to be sent out. I then got notice that once we do apply that we will not know until the end of the year whether we will in fact receive a grant or not.
We cannot spend money that we are not getting nor can we plan ahead. It places us in a terrible position. Bottom line is, this is an important meeting where no notice has been provided.
The Council Chambers is where the Town Council holds their meetings. They are located on Church Street south of the four corners where the banks and Post Office are located on Victoria Street, Alliston. We were not given any lead time.
We encourage any and all members to support arts and culture in our community. Please show your support by attending this meeting.
