Brian Wade: Friday, September 26, the HCCO held a meet and greet for candidates for the municipal election. The meeting started at 18:00 but soon after the lights went out because a tornado had knocked out the electrical system. We went to the lobby and soon after we left the building. There is another meet and greet, Saturday October 6 at 18:00, at the Carlington Recreation Centre.
David Armitage: The tornado hit Coady Co-op and four families were without shelter. They were taken to the Greenboro Community Centre because there was no power at ours. It would be valuable to have backup emergency power. Candles started a fire in Ashgrove. The tornado had knocked down trees which got in the way of the fire trucks.

Motion: To ask the City to provide a proper study in order to implement appropriate emergency measures at the Hunt Club/Riverside Park Community Centre. Moved by John Sankey, seconded by Al Gullon, carried.

Christine Johnson: We need a banner. At the Annual General Meeting in November, there will be a vote to change the name from the Hunt Club Community Organization to the Hunt Club Community Association (HCCA), in line with the other community associations in the City. The banner will have the HCCA logo. There are various styles and costs – a square meter is $80, two square meters is $160. With or without grommets.

Motion: To purchase two banners, one rectangular with 5 grommets and one tablecloth with 4 grommets. Moved by Christine Johnson, seconded by Al Gullon, carried.

Councillor’s Report
Riley Brockington: Presented the Councillor’s Report. Items:
– tornado: the City has put a lot of resources into fixing problems
– Ed Laverty Fields: the plaque was officially unveiled
– coyotes: a small dog was bit by a coyote in McCarthy Woods. The NCC owns McCarthy Woods. It will put up signs at the entrances, warning of coyotes. The City will host an information session sometime in November.
