Meet this Week’s “Friday FurBall”- Ivy

Posted on by Courtney

ivySweet Ivy came to the shelter along with her four siblings. As you can tell from her little head and big ears, she’s got a lot of growing to do! Ivy lacks a bit in socialization, so she is looking for a home who will enroll her in some puppy training classes. She is a quiet-mannered young lady who would do well in a home with other animals. If you think this sweet, 5 month old Labrador/hound mix could be the match for your family, drop by the KHS today for a visit!

New School

It’s a big day for the Limestone District School Board.

A Ceremonial Groundbreaking for the new Kindergarten to Grade 8 Molly Brant Elementary School is taking place this afternoon at the location of the new school at Lyons and Kirkpatrick Street.

MPP Sophie Kiwala, School Board Chair David Jackson and Director of Education Debra Rantz will attend what the school board says is a milestone for students and staff.

More Money Please

More money please will be the call when Kingston City Council meets on Tuesday night.

A staff report on the contract for the next Big Dig on Princess Street is recommending council approve a bid from Len Corcoran Excavating of $12.9 million.  That is almost $3 million dollars higher than the original estimate and a million dollars more than the only other bid from Taggart Construction.  The staff report says Taggart’s bid didn’t meet all of the criteria.

Turtle fencing is going to cost $55,000 more than expected.

The city originally agreed to spend 30 thousand… 30 thousand was raised in the community and the project got a provincial grant.

Staff is recommending taking the extra 55 thousand from reserves for the fencing along Princess Street from Parkway to John Counter Boulevard. The lowest bid was $142,000.

Memorial Centre – School

Kingston Mayor Bryan Paterson says the only way to reconsider the Memorial Centre as a site for Kingston’s new high school is to get a councillor to make a motion for reconsideration.

That motion would have to come from a councillor who voted against using the Memorial Centre property.

Paterson made the comment to a meeting on the new high school organized by the parent councils of both QECVI and KCVI.

QECVI student council co-president Andrew Blower asked what research was done before council decided the Memorial Centre property should be off the table.

Paterson admitted it did no research.
