“This is a problem I've created for myself. I'm trying to seek relief on behalf of the club for the extra costs ensued from the planning department,” he said.
TMSC is a volunteer group of snowmobilers affiliated with the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs. They have about 745 members from all around Ontario and maintain approximately 160 kms of groomed trails just east of Bobcaygeon.
Their main clubhouse and starting point for trail access is 889 Bass Lake Road.
Council initially considered having the club apply for a municipal grant next year to offset the penalty of about $500.
Then Councillor Terry Lambshead said, “Let's deal with this now.”
Council voted to “forgive the penalty,” recognizing Hulsmans’ error—and the benefits the club brings to the community.
