by Brian Donlevy Tillsonburg Council is still leaning towards moving to internet and telephone voting but they want to be sure of the costs before proceeding. Back in January Council approved a motion for the change to be made but they wanted more information including how much the switch will cost. Council heard more about the change at their last meeting but there was still no cost estimate. Council decided to hold off giving final approval until they saw the numbers which will happen at the last meeting of April. That is the deadline for passing the enabling bylaw because provincial legislation says any changes must be passed by Council before the 1st of May. Council is also going to send a letter to the Minister of Municipal Affairs requesting a change that would allow a business owner, who does not reside in town to vote in a municipal election. Currently if someone owns property in two municipalities they can vote to fill municipal council positions in both places.
