More than 20 closed-door meetings for Brock Township council so far this year

Members of Brock Township council hosted a total of 20 closed-door meetings through the first half of 2020.

That figure was provided by municipal staff following an inquiry by The Brock Voice.

The bulk of the meetings held thus far have involved staffing concerns and legal issues, including Durham Region’s proposal to build a 50-unit supportive housing development in Beaverton which has been formally opposed by the Township.

Late last year, township council passed an interim control bylaw that would prohibit the establishment of supportive housing and modular construction for a one-year period pending a municipal study.

The Region had planned to break ground on the 50-unit modular complex – essentially located between Lakeview Manor and Gillespie Gardens – early this year.

Another closed-door session on that topic was held in July, with another slated for Tuesday (Aug. 11) morning. Members of council are also expected to discuss a site plan agreement for the Brock Community Health Centre.
