Organizations Receive Donations

Proceeds from the 2017 Ontario Small Urban Municipalities Conference presented to five local organizations

At the June 26, 2017 Committee of the Whole, Council received a report outlining the financial results of hosting the 2017 OSUM Conference in The Blue Mountains. With the conference over, the Blue Mountains had a favourable variance in the amount of $60,210.  Council considered options on how to use the favourable variance. Those options included taking money into general revenues, carrying the money into 2018 for a specific purpose or using the money for one time only donations.  The 2017 Budget does not include any money received or expensed for the OSUM Conference.

At the August 21, 2017 Committee of the Whole meeting, Council  presented cheques to the following organizations:

  • Keep Family Foundation - $5,000
  • Marsh Street Centre - $11,500
  • The Blue Mountains Attainable Housing Corporation - $13,500
  • Meaford Hospital - $15,000
  • Collingwood General & Marine Hospital - $15,000

The sucess of the 2017 Ontario Small Urban Municipalities conference is good news!
